BB30 brg on FSA crank replacement

Removed chain and test crank rotation. Crank rotates freely.
Removed crank, and tested smoothness of FSA brgs.
Hand rotated brgs which had very slight drag compared to new brgs.
Is it worth replacing the brgs with new ones or keep using the existing ones to be replaced after 10000 klm.
Riding conditions are mostly dry.
Any experience appreciated.

If the bearings feel smooth and there is no non-standard play, then you can keep using them. If your conditions are mostly dry and not dusty, you ride with care and keep the bike well maintained then there is little reason why the bearings should not last the life of the bike.

Thanks for the response.
I am re-installing the crank with the same brgs.
