Anybody Have There Intermediate Apart?
The bearing in mine is almost completly sealed(6206 Z ), I dont think this is the factory bearing, grease cant get in there easily, let me know if your factory bearing or aftermarket is different.....

Bull, the GPR's are the same way. The grease is not supposed to get in the bearing. The grease is supposed to be a barrier to keep the water from entering the bearing.
Think about it.....pilot bearings on cars never get any grease in them and they last for thousands of miles. A good ball bearing shouldnt need grease in it.

If you have an established NAPA store they have a book to look up replacements of those bearings .. the number is typiclly the industry size standard, the letter or letters are the modifycation to that bearings (seals ,grooves , # of ball's, or cage materials).. you can sometimes remove the seal,clean and repack em'.... I know there expensive but I'VE HEARD ceramic bearings are the way to go!!!
