GOOD GREASE vs. BAD GREASE

— Tech tips on what you need to know for your CV joints,

as explained by Boss McKannick:

Dear Boss,
I just finished repacking the CV joints of my car, and I wanted to use the leftover CV joint grease in my RZR’s CV joints and wheel bearings. I was told by a counter guy at AutoZone that CV grease is no good for wheel bearings. I don’t really believe that, so I decided to ask you for the straight skinny on CV joint grease.

Danny Finn
Utica, NY

Actually, Danny, your AutoZonecounter guy is correct! The average ball or roller wheel bearing is adequately lubricated with an NLGI (National Lubricating Grease Institute) Grade 2 multi-purpose or EP grease meeting NLGI Service Category GC for mild to severe duty. CV joint grease is often manufactured to NLGI Grade 1 and would therefore not be suitable for ballor roller wheel bearings. Grease is essentially an oil-delivery system. It is the oil contained in the suspension grease that provides the lubrication. A good grease is about 60 percent lubricating oil. This lubricatingoil is drawn out of the grease by friction-induced heat. The grease is considered spent when the lubricating oil content is reduced to 50 percent. Grade 1 grease has the consistency of tomato paste and would be too thin for wheel bearing use. Grade 2 has the consistency of peanut butter and is what most people consider “normal grease.” Also, never mix grease brands or types. This may cause the grease to either harden or turn into a liquid, such as “de-gel.” Neither states are conducive to preventing metal-to-metal contact. For more information on greases, see the Amsoil site here: www.amsoil.com/newsstand/auto- and-light-truck/articles/a-closer-look- at-grease/.

I did a search and didn't find much info. I have always used a moly based general grease for shock pivots and a-arm or swingarm bushings. A buddy at work is tearing apart and greasing his dirt bike and said he is using a red waterproof grease. I have heard guys using automotive wheel bearing grease. I don't think there is a right or wrong choice but wanted to hear what you guys use or think makes the most sense.

marine grease


Permatex anti-sieze, lubes 10x better than grease and wont break down bushings made or rubber like petroleum based lubes

I love antiseize, put it on my swinger bolt and after a year it slid right out like it was new.

I use marine grade grease everywhere else, if it keeps saltwater out of motor parts it will deff keep mud and sand out.

just my opinion "not a proven fact" ... lol.

Lucas Red n tacky #2 grease. Its a marine grade grease with anti seize already in it. I use it on everything on the machine.

I use Citgo waterproof marine grease on everything except the carrier bearings and the front wheel bearings. I use red hi-temp grease on them, I forgot the brand but its the only kind my local Farm & Home had.

Ive been told and it is true that grease for wheel and carrier bearings isnt needed.

They are sealed bearings and the grease or oil is sealed inside.

I still use a heavy amount of grease whenever I take these things apart and put back together.

I dont care if they are sealed or not I want them greased!

while grease for the actual sealed bearings is not needed. the service manual does call for grease inside the swingarm, on the axle and on the outside of the carrier.

anti seize is great for bolts and stuff like that but, when it comes to wheel bearings and axle bearings, i use marine grease.


I pick the seal out of any bearing before installling, and pack with grease. If you've ever taken a new bearing seal out, you'll notice that they put hardly any grease in them. Probably a cost saving measure.


2001400exrida

02-14-2013, 01:51 PM

you stand a good chance to ruin the bearing seal if you attempt to pick it out. chances are good when you put it back in, it won't be sealed like it was. There's enough grease in a brand new bearing to last a long time as longa s the seals don't go. if the seals go, it doesn't matter how much grease they put in there....it'll fail eventually.

i use this stuff called SD polyurea grease. i figured since we use it in our combines that itll be good on my quad.

Thanks for all the input. It is that time of year to pull everything apart and grease the pivot points. Based in what I have read (and common sense) I will use some type of waterproof grease this time.

Wheel Bearing Greasers for ATV and UTV Machines

Wheel bearings for ATV’S and UTV’S do not come with enough bearing grease to sustain the use that you need, to keep riding without fail.  Limited grease leaves voids for water and dirt to enter and remain in the bearings.  Don’t let this happen to your investment!

We have developed a Wheel Bearing Greaser Tool that allows you to easily add grease to the bearings. Once your 1/2 shaft is out, or when you have a new bearing on your bench, simply use the Greaser Tool to push the grease into the bearing.  You can see it work: When you pump, the grease will fill the cavity and excess will be eventually evident out of the sides of the bearing, so you know it’s full.  Then, simply pull the Greaser Tool back out.

Customers have reported back that they were able to add 30 shots of grease into a bearing before it was full.

Use these as preventative maintenance on your existing bearings. If water or dirt exists in your current bearings, you may see water being evacuated when grease is being added.

Replacing your bearings with new? Add grease before installing. You will greatly extend the life of the bearings.

Depending on your machine make and model, one (1) or two (2) Tool Greasers may be required.  The prices are $50 for one (1) unit or $90 for two (2) units, which includes shipping within the continental US; except Alaska and Hawaii),

“I have a 2013 Polaris Sportsman 550 Touring with very low miles.  I saw the Machine Intergrations product on U Tube and thought it was interesting.  Purchased the MI-BGP-1628 which was for my model.  I opted to remove the front bearing housing as it made it easier to grease.  A bit more work but worth it.  All four bearings took over twenty shots of grease.  Spin the bearings and another four shots of grease.  Not a doubt that this was highly beneficial as well as VERY easy to do.  A great product at a great price. ” –  Doc M. (via email)

“This is the best tool I’ve used! I put over 15 shots of grease in 1 bearing!” – Dan H.

How to Grease your Polaris Wheel Bearings - SuperATV Wheel Bearing Greaser

MACHINED INTEGRATIONS BEARING GREASE TOOL

By the staff of Dirt Wheels

MACHINED INTEGRATIONS BEARING GREASE TOOL

In the May 2019 issue of Dirt Wheels, we had a story on greasing UTV wheel bearings. Since then we have had experience with Machined Integrations, LLC (MI) bearing greasing tools. A quality, well-designed tool is always a pleasure.

And in the case of UTV and 4×4 quad wheel bearings, these tools are almost required. The bearings are sealed on both sides. The only opening for grease is the seam in the split inner race, so you would have to risk damaging the bearings or the seals to grease them by hand, and, of course, it would be a giant mess. With the MI bearing tools, the job is quick, easy, and clean. We serviced Polaris RZR S wheel bearings.

WELL-BUILT
Removing the bearings is never required with the MI bearing tools, but on many machines, you have the option of not removing the axle. For the Polaris, MI has a normal greaser that requires pulling the knuckle off the axle or removing the axle.

It is the cheapest option at $29. MI also builds a tool that inserts over the axle. It is larger and more complex to machine and sells for $43. For those with shops or lots of riding buddies, there is a $115 Polaris 3-pack of over-the-axle tools that should cover any common Polaris machine.

MACHINED INTEGRATIONS BEARING GREASE TOOL

The greasers are machined from aluminum billet, assembled, and black-anodized. They are fitted with beefy O-rings to keep the job free from mess and wasted grease. For the front of our Polaris, we had to remove the wheel, remove the caliper, and pull the rotor and hub out. That allowed us to slide the tool over the axle and grease away.

CONTAIN YOURSELF
After the job, we used a single paper towel to wipe off the threaded-in grease fitting and the outside of the tool. The single grease fitting connects to four ports on the side of the tool.

There are O-rings on both sides of the ports. Between the O-ring grooves, the tool has a slight depression machined in for the grease to migrate easily around the tool. We wiped that off as well. That was all the mess for what is usually a nasty job—one paper towel.

Since there are four ports and the grease channel, the entire bearing is greased at once. There is no reason to rotate the tool.

MACHINED INTEGRATIONS BEARING GREASE TOOL

Buying the tools is easy, and they are available for an astonishing number of machines. Some machines have too little clearance between the axle and the knuckle, so the over-the-axle option is not available for those machines.

You can give Machined Integrations a call at (603) 420-8871 to order. You can buy online as well. Go to
www.machinedintegrations.com and click on the ATV/UTV products tab on the upper-right bar. That will jump you to the www.customatvutvparts.com site, or you can go directly to that site. When you click on “Buy Now,” it will jump to another page. Click on https://squareup.com/store/machined

CONCLUSION
Until you use this tool, you cannot imagine how easy it can be to service bearings. They fit perfectly, work as advertised, and don’t make a mess.

Grease atv bearing

Length: 2:36
Created: November 18, 2020

Transcript

[0:00] Have you ever wanted to grease the wheel bearings on your Polaris machine? SuperATV’s got you covered now with our Wheel Bearing Greaser. Today we’re going to show you how to use it!

Remove the Wheel and Tire

First we’ll remove the wheel and tire for whichever wheel bearing you want to grease. We’ll remove the cotter pin from the castle nut and then remove the hardware for our brake calipers.

Go ahead and remove the caliper. Just lay it up and out of the way. Grab the hub and slide it off, just like that. Grab the greaser and slide it right over the axle and into the bearing.

[0:58] Make sure you get it all the way in there, fully seated, so the face of the greaser is up against the bearing. Then we’ll take our grease gun and put it on the zerk.

Pump the Bearing Full of Grease

Pump the bearing full. I like to pump it until there is just a little bit coming out. Remove the greaser and reinstall it.

Make sure to reinstall your washers at the same time as the castle nut. Flip the caliper back over here. Then we’ll tighten our brake caliper hardware back up. Tighten the castle nut, then reinstall your cotter pin.

Fully Tighten Your Hardware

[2:09] The next thing you’ll do is make sure your hardware is fully tightened. Then reinstall your wheel and tire.

And that’s how super quick and easy it is to use SuperATV’s Wheel Bearing Greaser on this Polaris RZR! For more information on this wheel bearing greaser or any of SuperATV’s great products, feel free to give us a call at 855-743-3427 or check us out online at SuperATV.com. Thanks for watching and we’ll catch you next time.
