Bearing Buddy ® for Standard SL or LM Bearings (Pair)
Bearing Buddy ® fits 45.34mm Dia Standard Hubs. If your bearing protector is loose, clean then coat the contact surface with locktite.
Fit the following Hubs and bearings:-
- Lazy Hubs
- Disc Rotors
- 10-inch drums
- Flangeless Hubs
Note: It is essential Locktite is applied when bearing buddies are inserted into hubs to help prevent them 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.
Dust cap can become lose if hammered into position too frequently even on the first insert.
Once the dust cap is home, stop hitting it. The extra hit can make it fit loosely.
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.
Grease is generally in oversupply during the greasing process.
Grease will exit the bearing cavity at high speeds and during the initial heating and cooling process. Note: Grease never re-enters the bearing cavity one caught in the grease cap.
