Step 2: External Bearing Cleaning

Whipe the bearings down with a paper towel or rag and pop the seals, and remove the cages if you want. Try and remove all mud, dirt, dust or slime the might be on your bearings.

I advise you not to remove your cages.You might bend them.A quick shot of air will get the dirt out.
you cant really bend plastic...
Some cages are metal,some are plastic.Either way,you don't want to remove them.
bones reccomends removing the plastic cages for cleaning
Sure,if you have bones bearings.
another example is vxb bearjngs which i recently bought a set of theyre ceramics for just over 12 dollars
Okay,go ahead and remove them as long as they're removable.<br>Sound better?
yeah,did a cleaning today and removed the shields,the hard part is getting them back in
Good point. I've never taken my cages out but then again I'm very cautious.
Hey what oil are you using?
I love your deck! And the trucks go really well with the colour =)
Thanks. :) I never intended for the colors to go well with each other. I just needed a new deck and new trucks.
