Assemble the Gripper
Stretch the Gripper ring over the grease seal (2x).
The Gripper should be aligned with the outward face of the grease seal, as shown.
Press the grease seal with gripper into the holders. Make sure the gripper and the seal are both pushed down all the way.
Add the adhesive
Make sure the parts are clean, use rubbing alcohol if necessary to get a clean surface for the adhesive, then install as shown. Doesn’t have to be perfectly aligned.
Remove the Axle blocks
Use a 5mm hex and hold the blocks with a large wrench of some kind.
Left vs Right!
The bearing protection is marked left or right.
Right: the side with the valve stem.
Left: the side with the cable.
If you screw up, don’t worry, just pop off the covers and switch them.
Clean and add grease
Clean everything thoroughly with isopropyl alcohol and then apply grease as shown from the syringe. Use the image as a guide for how much to use, saving the rest for when you need a top-off down the road. Check your grease levels every 500 miles or so.
Putting the seal assembly on the shaft
Keep the assembly together during install. If the seal pops out, take everything back, re-assemble, and start over.
Axle caps back on
And make sure the grease seal assembly is pushed down all the way around.
