using the "greaser" just rotate the inner race of the bearing as you inject the grease, this will allow fresh grease to sweep out any and all old grease or dirt

you will want to spin the bearings prior to reassembly to get the excess grease to come out so it does not all come out on your heli

keepin' it real

Ther is an old rule about bearings. Never use a solvent to flush a bearing. If you feel there is grit in the bearing use a light grease first with a different color, and when the new color comes thru on the 2nd pack you know you have enough

It's hard to hit the auto s/w
