Bearing FAQs

Can I service sealed bearings?

Yes. All of the Enduro sealed bearings we offer can be serviced. Simply remove the seals with a knife, clean and rinse the bearing with a de-greaser or solvent to remove all contamination and old grease. Pack the bearing with new grease and re-install seals.
