Hello Ben,
the bearings came from THE source in Torino. Everybody here will know. But this quality problem of reproduced spares keeps chasing me... (now with the Flaminia).

Don't know about Aprilia, but in the Aurelia, the change to thin shell bearings, and a modern filter also called for changing the oil pump to the later series, higher capacity one. Wasn't a problem, tho.

I've been running the Aprilia on shell bearings since the early 1980's without any problems, the oil pressure is excellent, but with any Aprilia you should change the oil regularly because the filter is not brilliant , shell bearings or no shell bearings
