Skateboard bearings are an integral part of the skateboarding process. They help you to turn and stop, so they must work well at all times. In this blog post, we will discuss how to clean your bearing on a skateboard to ensure that it continues working properly.
– For cleaning the bearing on skateboard, Firstly, you will need a screwdriver and a cleaner for bearings as well as an old toothbrush or small scrubbing brush.
You may also want to have some rags on hand so that you can wipe away any excess dirt after it has been removed from the area around the wheel.
– Locate where the bearing is located within your skateboard – there should be two pools of grease next to each other at this point.
If not, then check again because one must be misplaced or somehow defective (if they are both presents).
– Take your screwdriver and use it to loosen the screws that will be keeping the two parts of the skateboard together – usually, these are four in total on each side.
– Clean both sides of all bearings using your old toothbrush or scrubbing brush.
You may need a couple of brushes for this, depending on how dirty the bearings are at any given time and how long they have been left to build up dirt.
– Pay particular attention to all ridges and gaps in between the two halves where there is no lubricant because it will be much harder to clean these areas with just brushing alone
– you might want an extra rag handy if this happens so that you can use it as part of your cleaning process.
– Take each bearing out of its hole once again before giving them one last wipe down with another cloth; then pop them back into their respective holes to ensure everything is well oiled and working correctly.
