new to the fourms, joined up a few weeks ago.
Great info and I found lots of help.
I just picked up a '95 Honda Fourtrax 300 4wd, which had some issues when I bought it.
I pulled the rear end apart, had some minor damage but I'm replacing all the bearing, seals and o-rings.
I have a question about the 2 axle bearings and upper drive bearing.
The service manual doesn't really mention and I asked the dealer and they confirmed that I DO NOT need to pack the bearings in grease.
The axle bearing get lubrication from the gear oil in the case, sure no problem. But where does the upper gear bearing get lubrication?
I have attached an image, axle bearings are #27 and upper gear bearing is #28 (highlighted in red).
I was just wondering if I could grease the bearings a little bit, I just can't get past putting an exposed bearing into something, while not being greased.
Any input or info is appreciated.
Thanks in advanced
