2018 sealed unit wheel bearings fit previous models and are $4 cheaper than non-sealed units.
Can anyone confirm this?
Can anyone confirm that they are FAR better than non-sealed?

I mean, I am sure they would know, but I find this shocking tbh.

So the new ones don't have a split inner race?

No reason the sealed bearings wouldn't fit if the axles and hub sizes are the same.

I'm picking up my new xp1k sportsman tommorow the first thing I get a chance I will look at them while I have the wheels off changing tire , kind of hope that we'll still be able to grease them.

2015 and 2018 use the same bearing - what years and models are your inquiring about?
I wasn’t given a range of years that share the same bearing but dealer was aware that I have a ‘15 and the statement was made regarding my bearings and the new.
Your statement would confirm their claim.
Interesting.

Now the question is, with the greaser tool being so affective, do you stick with original that you can service or go sealed unit?

As far as I have seen, Polaris wheel bearings are pretty much all sealed. Some may be better sealed than others but the double bearings also all have the split race in the middle. I have seen some aftermarket bearings with an open face design but never used them.

I just got a set of bearings off ebay with a 2yr. warranty for 59.00. Fist time I've tried them and never seen a bearing with a warranty... So I figured I'd give them a try.... RockyMT.brearings is how it's listed if I'm not mistaking.

They're ALL greaseable. I've added grease to all wheel bearings for years no matter what brand or machine. Until recently when the plug in greasers became available, I always used a needle tip attachment on the grease gun to go in beside the seals and pump the bearings full. The new style greasers just make the job a little quicker and easier.

A friend of mine modified the bearings on his outlander so that you can grease them without pulling the hub. He drilled and tapped a hole for a grease fitting in the knuckle where the bearing goes. He drills a small (less than 1/8th inch) hole in the outer race of the bearing where it would line up with the fitting and is able to pump grease directly into the bearing. Seems to work well enough.

I would prefer a solid 1 pc inner race to keep the water and mud out. Problem is this bearing size is pretty much unique to polaris, I have been to all 3 bearing shops in town and searched online for an alternative.
