#HyperGlide Bearing Maintenance

Lately, we’ve received quite a few questions regarding our bearing maintenance and how to best keep them roldling smooth!
A lot of the questions regarding such refer to how often the bearings should be maintained. We recommend after every race weekend or few race weekends, to look over the bearings each individually and re oil them if you feel any grind at all!
Some tracks are physically demanding, sandy, maybe fuzzy on carpet and turf settings, so if you find that your track is excessive of the such, give them a check more often!
However, we’ve had drivers run the same set, with no maintenance for even up to a year! It can all vary.
Anyways, here’s another walk through on how re oil the bearings if needing to do so! Hopefully this helps and if you have any questions, feel free to comment or pm us.


A walk through on how Broc Champlin properly flushes and re-oils his HYPERGLIDE Ceramic Bearings. We have many people ask questions, so here’s the process Broc uses..
“First things first, I get an X-acto knife with a nice blade and some TDK bearing oil. TDK’s bearing oil is designed around ceramic bearings that Whitz Racing sells separately and I highly recommend.

There is a small gap on what I call, the exit ring. You’ll want to pry that up. It’s quite an art but fairly easy. Do your best not to push down on the metal bearing seal and crush it. Once doing a few, you’ll get the hang and it’s a breeze.

When the bearing is open, I dab in a bit of bearing fluid. From there, I take and spin the bearing from the opposing side to work that fluid around. When that’s done, I put another dab of fluid in, and flip the bearings. I let them sit for a few minutes on a towel, the open side down, while they drain. I usually like to let them sit and do something else, then come back to them. I’d say they need only 5-7 minutes on average. You should see the gunk come out wether it be dirt, small carpet fibers, etc., or maybe you can see it but it is there.

The last and final step. I take the bearing, put small dabs of bearing fluid between the bearing balls, and seal the bearing. First goes on the metal bearing seal, and to lock it in, you clip back in the exit ring. Your bearings should have a much better touch and feel fresh.
It’s easy, it’s fast, and you’ll learn that the crunch you might’ve had before, is gone.
Bearings are key when you’re trying to find that extra bit of comfort and reliability. For stock racers, it’s even more beneficial as they also lower temps, and give a more precise feeling with the power band on top of the other benefits as well.”
Hopefully this helps all and gets you the knowledge you need to rebuild your bearings properly. If anyone has questions, drop a comment and we will get you an answer!
