Should you grease motorcycle axles?

In blunt language, few motorcycles are greased on a regular basis. ... To prevent them from seizing in their bearings apply a thin film of grease to both axles. I like to use a high pressure waterproof grease or high-temp wheel bearing grease here; at the very least do it the next time you install new tires.

Should I Grease axle shaft?

When installing a CV shaft into a bearing hub assembly, we don't recommend using any lubricant at all. Instead, just clean the shaft really well with a wire brush and make sure there's no dirt or debris on the shaft or in the hub.

Should you grease dirt bike axle?

The axle does not turn when your spin the wheel. ... Some suggest that you should still grease the axles against rust. My experience though is that grease is sticky and attracts dirt that leads to "gunk" that leads to more sand and dirt that leads to problems that are messy (and greasy) to clean and solve.

What can I use instead of axle grease?

Try peanut butter and get back to me on that. Automotive wheel bearing grease is usually way cheaper than "bike" grease and is just as effective. You can probably get a tub for the cost of a tube of "bike" grease.

What grease should I use on my motorcycle?

Do you grease front motorcycle axle?

You need some grease on the axle to prevent corrosion, I like the waterproof green grease, but the High Temp Disk Brake grease with Moly works very good too.

Do you Grease axle bearings?

It is recommended to grease the bearings when they are newly installed, to give them some initial lube. But as you go around turns and such, the gear lube in the diff does lubricate the bearings for the long term.

Is CV joint grease special?

cv grease is special grease and not usually compatible with bearing or chassis grease.

Do you grease motorcycle wheel bearings?

If your bike's wheel bearings can be greased, get wheel-bearing grease (the type recommended by your motorcycle manufacturer) and new grease seals as needed, before starting the job. ... However, if the bearings have shields on only one side, and seem a little dry, then it's a good idea for some grease to be added.
