bearings

Other than replacing, is there any maintenance on the axle and front wheel bearings that should be done?

Re: bearings

A 1985 Honda Fourtrax 250 utility. I recently had it all apart while rebuilding the final drive gear (rear end) and noticed some rust discoloration on one side. I didn't notice ANY bearing grease on them at all but they seem to have some type of oil on them. Is it suppose to be like packing the bearings on a 4x4? It seems like they would have seals on both sides of the bearings if that were the case. I don' think any oil gets out to the bearings from the rear end either because there are seals to hold the oil in there.

Re: bearings

some of them have sealed bearings and some have partial sealed. The difference is:
a sealed bearing: both sides of the bearing have been sealed with its own lubrication.

A partial sealed bearing: One side (typically the outer side) is sealed but the internal side is open.

Yes pack them similar to a standard 4x4 bearing...I also put a new layer of grease in the area that the shaft goes through....
