Question What bearing problem

I'm not sure what you mean. Front wheel bearings are cheap and easy to install in new wheels.

No bearing in rear wheel mate

You should have had the hub serviced by now.

Another rear wheel has no to none effect on the rear hub assembly.
But if You want to change from the old star wheels to some newer stuff I would go the route to some Brembo or Marchesini forged super lights. The weight difference is simply amazing and improves handling noticeable. I just weighed my old Stars and they come in with whopping 9.8 lbs at the front and 12 lbs at the rear.

You were a week too late. Just sold my flawless Brembo Forged Ultralights for $1k. I'm switching them for the 7-Spoke Black Mamba BST Carbons. Stiffies all around. Sorry.

Go for it. I have the same bike and got bored with the stock star wheels. I purchased a barely used set of the forged ultralights from a forum member here. Handling is better due to the substantially lighter weight and looks great too. For peace of mind, I had the rear hub upgraded to Mitch's hub as well at the same time. My wallet is quite a bit lighter this month....
