Thread: 91 K75RT should I grease my rear hub bearing ?

    91 K75RT should I grease my rear hub bearing ?

    I got my 1991 K 75 RT wheels back from a shop that mounted the new tires . They replaced the front wheel bearings, but the rear wheel bearing is in the hub.. There is no side play , but should I put some greae on the bearing ? I feel grease in there now, but wondering if I should add a little while the wheel is off ,.

    The rear hub bearing is lubed by the gear oil inside the final drive. You should check the oil level. It should be up to the bottom thread of the filler hole.
