how can i repair my bearing in the velinion motor? (if possible)
if not, what's a good bearing for it?

I don't think you can. You can try opening the motor, with a very small allen key, but you can't buy bearings separately from the motor unless you measuure the bearings and find some aftermarket ones which do, but they are probably very small.

i've already opened the motor and the bigger bearing is making a strange sound..
is there any rebuild kit?

There is no rebuild kit, measure the inner and outer diameter of the bearing and see if you can find some bearings from a different company online.
I found this site helpful http://www.avidrc.com/

Have you tried to oil it? You never know, you might get luck.

There is no rebuild kit for it, but it would be cool to know what bearing works as a replacement.

ceramic (just one)
If you're sure it's 4x9x4 any of those should work, I found 4x9x3 to be more common i'd imagine the thickness should be fine if you have a 1mm spacer of your own

I just cleaned the bearing with WD40 and put it back in.. i dont know if is ok if the oil hits the magnets ..

I’m not sure about the magnets, but I would not rely on wd40 for lubrication. Trinity makes oil designed for this application. It has a container with a long needle so you can get to the hard to reach places.I lube my motor bearings from the outside every once in a while to help prevent your situation. If that’s not available, try 3 in 1.
