    Water proofing the bearings??

    Hey guys, would it be possible to somehow water proof or pre treat the bearings?

    Most of the bearings or at least the more exposed bearings have become rough or seized so I purchased a full replacement set. But was wondering if I could somehow treat them before installation to help them be more moisture resistant?

    I have a few cans of Wurth HHS2000 which is high pressure resistant, high adhesive synthetic lubricating oil and provides water splash resistance.

    Would I compromise the new bearings by spraying or even soaking them in this stuff before installation?

    I'd appreciate your thoughts on this. Thanks!

    Why dont you soak a few in them and then put power so those bearings get used and go from there,JMO.

    Yeah like he said, try it. I don't have a udr, but I use marine grease in my bearings. I've gotten a couple years out of them in my bashers.
