Bearing snafu

So had to order bearings for my 600RR front wheel on the VTR. Wanted them quick and no one local had em. Paid $35 for 2nd day shipping from geogia. Anyway, when they came & I had the wheel off I found they sent me REAR bearings. Pretty annoying for my daily rider.
The good new is that I always keep extra bearings on the shelf for such an occasion. On the fiche, it looks like CBR is not compatible with VTR. BUT fortunately they share the same bearings and I had them all along!. I was able to drive them in without the overnight in the freezer trick.
Looks like all ***** has some issue with a mistake on the part # of front & rear bearings.
Just wanted to pass along the info. Let my headache prevent future drama.
