I remove the seals and throw them in lighter fluid over night.
change the fluid the next day for clean stuff and let them soak until i get off work. (8 hours or so)

I use Rollerblade bearing lube in mine, but im sure theres better stuff to use

the Acer Racing stuff is great, I will put mine in Motor spray for about an hour or so, then line them up and put some oil on the outside of the sheild, and let it soak in, the sheilds stay on the whole time, a sheild that has been taken of will never hold the same, it will always hold worse
