Hi guys

I have been using the new auto hub on my Freya for quite some time and feel it is time for a re-lube.

I had a good look at the picture of all the parts lying appart that was here on RR. the centre tube looks to be 'joined' to the inner part of the one-way bearing.

Does the lower bearing just push out?
Is it ok to push down on the centre tube or will this stress the one-way bearing?
I assume it needs to be heated to break the locktite.

Thanks guys

Regards
Paul

The recommend way to lube hub is to just drip the oil (I use TriFlow) on the outer shaft and then spin the shaft to lube the bearing. I just repeat this process until the oil start to “leak” out the bottom. I would discourage disassembling the hub as it was not intended to be disassembled by the “end-user” and may lead to damaging the unit.

At least someone read the manual/instruction sheet.

I wouldn't take it apart unless the bearing was broken. Heat and a press are ideal, no banging. You would need to heat the hub to remove and heat the hub to reinstall. Also a "guide" will be needed to slide the bearing back over the autodrive shaft. The bearing would not just slide on as the teeth of the bearing need a little convincing for reseating the autodrive shaft in hub.

Just let the oil wick its way around the autodrive as Hirobo suggests. It will be fine. If the bearing breaks, that is another story.

Hi guys

I oiled the auto bearing last night. Took quite a long time and alot of oil to get it to flow out the bottom bearing. I was just slowly turning the bearing while adding oil. The oil that came out the bottom was still clear, like new oil. Which is a good think....

The auto bearing is a little 'looser' after the oil, but still 'tighter' than the old style auto hub.

Thanks for the help.

Regards

Paul
