Basically you have to stay out of the mud, water, & swamps, & have no fun, OR you can get some sealed bearings. They seem to last longer. Just because their sealed doesn't mean that they will not go out, but will hold up against the "elements" longer. Good luck.

I have been ridin' in the worst stuff possible for bearings for the past few years. Water, sand, mud, sandy water, you name it. The bearings seem to be in great shape so far. No wobbly wheels or anything yet. I wonder how long they will last if I keep ridin' in the same stuff? I know they can't hold out forever. What is the first signs of the bearings goin' out?

By the way, where is another place besides Highlifter to get sealed bearings? Sometimes it pays to shop around. Is there another brand besides the Highlifter sealed bearings? If so, are they as good?

I just put on a set of sealed bearings from HL. They did not come with the outside seals.
I thought they were supposed to come with inner & outer seals?. Was it a mess up on their part?

Some say to get sealed bearings, like Highlifter or Pivot Works.
Some also say they don't work all that well & some swear by them.
I have over 3,000 hrs & right at 1800 miles on mine. All original.
No wobbles yet.

Well, we don't live in the water with ours. That probably has
a lot to do with how they are holdin' up.
