wheel bearing greaser

I bought the machined integrations set for the rubicon(and fits my sons rancher).
Did the rear today, took about 10 pumps each side. I'll get the front done, then work on the rancher and rzr next.
Some guys swear by the bearing greasers, I figured I would try them out and see if they will help the bearings last a little bit longer.
In the honda manual, it says to replace the front caliper bolts...Does anyone actually get new ones when you remove the caliper?

I've never replaced caliper bolts.


Let us know how the bearing greaser goes. I'm getting pretty disgusted with all the aftermarket bearings. They just don't last.

Works great.
I ended up doing both atv rears a couple weeks ago.
Got the rancher front done today. It's a little work getting to the bearings, but worth it. Took about 6-10 pumps of grease
each bearing. I'll do the rubicon fronts next week when I get some time.
SHould be good til next year.

I picked up one of the MI greasers but haven't had a chance to use it yet.

Not crazy about having to buy a different one for each specific bearing, but since my family and friends almost all ride 05-11 Foremans or 05-14 Rubicons the one I ordered will take care of most of the rigs I work on.


I'll probably just get a Lisle generic bearing greaser to use on rear bearings and the bearings in the wife's Rancher.

I got around to the fronts yesterday. No big deal. Took about a dozen pumps max each side. It is time consuming taking everything apart.
But, if I do it once a year, worth it not having to replace bearings. At least for a few years, hopefully.
