OEM 088/089 Bearings

Production and Composition

BMW "088/089" bearings were the factory production bearings between 2007 to mid-2010. When the EU mandated the removal from lead in automotive bearings, BMW discontinued these bearings.

The composition is a standard babbit lead/copper bearing. They are soft faced, and easy on the crankshaft.

Manufacturer: Clevite. Clevite logo is seen on the back of the bearings.
Composition: Trimetal lead/copper

OEM 702/703 Bearings

Production and Composition

EU mandates against lead/copper bearings began in 2011. However, S65 engines have been seen with mid-2010 production dates having these newer 702/703 bearings. These bearings remained in production until the end of S65 production in 2013.

The new 702/703 bearings are made from tin/aluminum composition. BMW increased the clearance slightly over the 088/089 bearings and increased the eccentricity as well. But this improvement in clearance and eccentricity came at a price. The 702/703 bearings are substantially harder than the 088/089 bearings they replaced. As a consequence, when a bearing is spun, it tends to cause more damage to the crankshaft in the process.

Manufacturer: Glyco.
Bearing composition: Bimetal Aluminum

BE Bearings

Production and Composition

Manufacturer: Clevite
Composition: Trimetal lead/copper
Coating: Clevite TriArmor®
Part Number: SP1527HK
Target Market: Extra clearance OEM replacement

BE Bearings are a full custom rod bearing designed and manufactured by Clevite. Clevite manufactures the bearings to the BE Bearing specifications.

The composition is a standard babbit lead/copper bearing with additional Clevite Tri-Armor non-friction coating. They are soft faced, and easy on the crankshaft, and compatible with stop-start vehicles.

Lead/Copper, Tri-Metal design Tri-Metal, lead/copper are considered the world's best bearings.  The steel backing is coated with copper, then topped with a soft lead.  The lead is embeddable, meaning small particles can embed themselves in the lead without causing any damage to the crankshaft.  Look in the best automotive engines, and you're likely to find a Tri-Metal bearing design.

Used Oil Analysis (UOA) BE Bearings chose the Tri-Metal lead/copper bearings to track the metals in the UOA like Blackstone.  Owners with 2008-2010.5 vehicles still have the lead/copper bearings and can track their bearing life with the UOA.  The newer tin/aluminum BMW bearings are virtually untrackable in the UOA.  BE Bearings wanted their bearings to show up in the UOA, and another reason they chose the Tri-Metal, lead/copper design.

Factory BMW oil recommendations There's a lot of discussion about the best for the S65/S85.  BMW specified 10W60 weight oil, and many people believe this is too thick for the bearing clearances.  Others believe BMW chose it for a specific engineering reason and refuse to switch regardless of the too-thin oil clearance.  For better peace of mind, BE Bearings wanted their bearing owners to know they can safely use 10W60 oil with their bearings, just as BMW had specified in the first place.

Clevite TriArmor® coating For increased bearing life and durability, BE Bearings chose to add the Clevite TriArmor coating.  TriArmor is a low-friction coating offered directly from Clevite with a Clevite warranty.  It's ideally suited for start-stop engines and protects the crankshaft and bearings at critical times of low oil pressure and/or during start up.

WPC Treated Bearings

Production and Composition

WPC treated bearings start life as standard 072/703 bearings. These bearings are sold through Auto Talent and EAS. An end-user may also send bearings to WPC for treatment. Unlike Calico CT-1 coating, the WPC treated bearings slightly remove material to create a low-friction surface. Manufacturer: WPC

Calico Coated Bearings

Production and Composition

Calico coated bearings start life as standard 072/703 bearings. These bearings are sold through VAC, ESS, and Harrop. An end-user may also send bearings to Calico for coating. Calico adds their CT-1 coating to the surface of the bearing. The coating adds a slight thickness, thereby decreasing bearing clearance. The thickness to each shell is estimated by Calico between 0.0002 - 0.0004 inch.
Manufacturer: Calico Coatings
Manufacturing Defects: There's two primary manufacturing defects associated with Calico coated bearings.

  1. Calico coating is also placed on the parting lines. The material on the parting lines will affect the "bearing crush" and may wear unevenly or in a different manner than a standard OEM bearing.
  2. BMW bearings are sold in upper (blue) and lower (red) bearing shells. When the Calico coating is applied, this color distinction is lost. The upper (blue) bearings are slightly thicker than the lower (red) bearings. However, Calico habitually mixes these shells up and returns them to the customer mislabeled: uppers are now lowers, and visa-versa.
