Questions:
Q: When should I replace my bearings?

A: If you have gone through the cleaning steps outlined above and your bearings begin to feel gritty or notchie to the touch, they should be replaced. When bearings sit idle for a long time, they must be protected from any and all moisture. This is a common problem when storing small RC engines. If any moisture has gotten to the bearings, they will need to be replaced before using the engine again.
