Bearing grease

Recommended Posts

Right, I'm about to do yet another strip down of my AVX, but this time I'm going to replace the crude RA radial bearing with a Timken taper bearing. I'm also upgrading the cheap rear thrust bearing, while I'm in there.


I've got a tube of Super Lube synthetic grease lying around, for which I was going to pack the bearings with. I've since learnt there's better alternative for this, but does anyone have any specific recommendations? I'm not sure high speed bearing grease is the way to go, but I'm all ears.
