Did you clean out all the previous grease? I heard Red Line CV-2 doesn't play well with other greases, curious what your thoughts are on that. Just ordered my front and rear greasers, I'm planning on doing it this weekend. Trying to figure out what grease to use...

I did not clean the original grease out. Ive been using the red line grease for years in everything from ujoints to steering parts in my trucks and anything else that needs grease and have never had any ill effects. We will see if it does not work good with this polaris because its in every grease zerk I could find. oh and the back two bearings took 30 pumps before starting to push out of the seal.

Just got my grease bearing tool yesterday. Worked like a charm. 18 pumps in the front and I'll get to the rears tomorrow. I went with a marine grade grease.

30 pumps?!? Good lord lol, can't imagine how dry mine are then. Thanks for sharing your red line experience, reviews are crazy good for it. I'll give it a shot...or 30...

The good. They're cheap and fit over the axles. They actually work, so that's a bonus. I used these tonight on my 18 sportsman 570 with 160 miles on it.

The bad... Single hole so you have to then them while pumping the gun.

Not sure I understand the bad, is the word "hold" missing, and what does the single hole have to do with it? What single hole? If they are the same ones I bought it has two o-rings so they should stay neutral, there should be no pressure wanting to move them out, they should stay centered. Not trying to make a big thing out of it, just want to understand your experience since I havent used mine yet.

He may be talking about these, which don't appear to have 3 holes (I just ordered these): https://www.ebay.com/itm/22345543036...m=223455430363

I just watched this video:
...and it seems like it does a good job with only 1 o-ring which might help prevent putting too much pressure and pushing out the back seal. I may play with the ones I bought and try them with only one o-ring (keep the one on the end on). I may also drill a second and possibly a 3rd hole in the ones I ordered.

Does the Sportsman 450 H.O. use the same size as the Sportsman 570?

I know this is off-topic, but I think I figured out why my grease gun is hard to put on and take off after watching this video:

I can't believe I'm just learning this @ 41 years old!

I think the missing word is ďTurnĒ. There are a few others on the market that have a 3 hole design so you donít have to turn it while pumping with grease but I donít believe turning it is actually necessary because it fills the ridge with grease anyway. I did turn mine around the axle and had no problem doing it. I can see how 3 holes would be a nice addition but turning wasnít a pain in the least bit. The company that makes the 3 hole design, does not make a 35mm for the front hubs on the 570ís.
