Experienced drivers can hear a bearing going bad by the sound of the motor. There is no predefined time spot when bearing must be changed. It all depends from the use. Check the bearing in a regular basis, lets say every gallon. Bearing should feel super smooth. If you are feeling that the bearing has some play or the doesnt run smooth, change it (you can always compare it with a new one). On the second change of the rear bearing, i also recommend changing the front. I have seen destroyed motors from a faulty rear bearing, so give some attension to it. I have saved a motor with a bad bearing twice just because i check it regularly. As for lube, after run oil/bearing oil is just fine. Just dont let it dry after cleaning the motor.

hope it helps.
