So with these do you just put a drop of bearing oil on them and then call it a day?

I just install 'em and run 'em. The stock xray bearings I soaked overnight in Mobil 1 5w-30 since they were rumored to have issues with "dry" bearings shipped in some kits (this was with the '007 kits). The Avid come pre-greased. You could blow out the excess with a blow gun and compressor, but I don't bother.

They come lubed with a heavy lube ready to go. Some guys blow the lube out and re-oil with a light weight oil, I'm not that worried about it, they get faster with time

I usually spray them with motor spay to take some of the lube it comes with away. then apply a drop of bearing oil. But sometimes I just put them in the car, and they tend to get more free as I run the car.
