Has anyone ever used products from this company? Their Bearing kit I need is $45 compared to OEM $103. For 4 bearings and 2 seals.

Pivot Works Bearings & Seals
As a lifelong dirt bike rider, Pivot Works founder Curt Leaverton has built his reputation on the ability to identity areas of need for riders, then develop and deliver quality solutions. Created in 1999 under the C&L Companies banner, Pivot Works was the first manufacturer to offer complete bearing kits for suspension and chassis maintenance on dirt bikes and ATVs. By grouping all hardware for a complete component rebuild in one box, riders get an industry-leading solution that’s fast, easy and affordable. Professional racers, mechanics and enthusiasts around the world trust Pivot Works bearings and seals, and Dennis Kirk has a huge selection of bearing kits ready to ship the moment you order.

With a Pivot Works bearing kit for your front wheels, rear wheels or hubs, you get parts that outperform OEM specifications while costing less. Adding Pivot Works bearings not only restores the steering and braking control lost due to worn-out or rusted bearings, but improves upon it by minimizing wear and friction. Each ball bearing is double-sealed to keep water, dirt and oil out while fitting as a factory stock replacement. All kits include any seals, spacers, pins and any other hardware needed for installation, and ATV bearing kits include enough hardware for both front or both rear wheels.

In addition to their dirt bike and ATV kits, Pivot Works has a number of bearing and seal kits for sport bikes and metric cruisers, so riders of all stripes can enjoy quality handling and control. Just enter your year, make and model into our fitment tool or contact our Tech Team to find the right kit. Pivot Works is so confident in the quality of its bearings and seals that they offer a lifetime replacement program against ordinary wear and tear on every kit they sell. And with our same-day shipping, no-hassle returns and legendary service, you’ll have two industry-leading companies standing behind your order for the ultimate in shopping confidence.

I doubt you will be able to find actual USA made bearings for that. Many are "assembled in the USA" from Chinese steel.

I installed the pivot works bearings and seals on my dirt bikes and they are considered a premium upgrade over stock and other aftermarket substitutes. I beat the heck out of my bikes and the Pivot Work seals and bearings have been flawless.
