Default Oneway bearings in 2 speeds

Is it a good idea to put grease in your oneway bearing in your 2 speed?? Won't that cause it to slip??

Grease is a big no no.

I usually put nothing at all on them and they last just fine. If I get an occasional slip and don't have a new one to replace it with, a drop of ATF seems to work quite well.

Big no no for grease.

A long lasting 1 way bearing need attention and maintenance.

You can use after run oil and lint free clothes to clean the roller bearings inside the 1 way unit.

You can put 1 drop of after run oil ( or 1 way bearing oil to be specific ) as the final touch before putting all back to the main shaft.

Do not put too much oil. Wet one way will attract more dirts and shorten its life, and slip problem too.

Honestly, dont even touch them! Ive run the same one since the end of 2008, bought a new car and kept using it. Dont clean it!! Just put ONE drop of one-way oil on it everyonce in a while and it will be fine. Ive seen people clean them only to have them fail.
