Note: It is essential Locktite is applied when bearing buddies are inserted into hubs to help prevent them from becoming dislodged during transit. Some hub bosses can vary by as much 0.2mm. This variation in some manufacturers hub sizes can cause a loose-fitting bearing buddy. We recommend a medium strength locking compound on all bearing buddies.
Some hubs do not have machined chamfers in the boss and rear of the hub.
Insertion can be difficult. Using a pipe of the correct diameter can significantly improve the ease of installing the dust cap.
Dust cap can become loose if hammered into position too frequently even on the first insert.
Once the dust cap is home, stop hitting it. An extra hit can make it loose-fitting.
Question: Should I fill my grease cap full of grease.
Answer: No, the purpose of the grease cap is to catch excess grease from the bearing cavity. Your grease cap should be inserted dry.
Grease exits the bearing cavity at high speeds and during the initial heating and cooling process. Grease never re-enters the bearing cavity one caught in the grease cap.
Finally, take care when loading grease through the grease nipple.
