I assume you are talking about the seal around the eadge of the brake drum.

yes the space in between the grooves should be packed with a multipurpose grease. be sure to clean the area inside the drum of excess grease so it wont get on the shoes. I use a good quality wheel bearing grease on mine.

also just a little on the rubber O ring in the center of the drum

Happy trails

If you ride in alot of mud or water, I would use marine grease. It helps keep the water out of the seals. I have taken mine apart a few times after putting marine grease on it, and it seems to do a pretty good job!


WHAT $100.00 for bearings and seals!!!! I hope they used some KY!!

I went to the dealer for mine after they told me the price i told them to keep it. I got one off ebay that night for 40 dollors made by All Balls Racing it's held up so far. Allways check ebay 1st before going to the dealer, they allways screw you.

All Balls is a real good kit! Their bearings will last longer than most.
