Step 2: External Bearing Cleaning

Picture of 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.

Good point. I've never taken my cages out but then again I'm very cautious.
