You will wear either the bearing or the race. Period. Bearings are not meant to be tightened that tight.

I used to love these clowns that would pump tons of grease into their bearings then try to get me to warranty them due to premature failure.

Doesn't work like a dampner, but it helps, managed to get myself out of some nasty high speed ruts today that i feel i would have normally crashed on, i only tightened them untill they felt a little bit notchy, wouldn't dare go anymore.

Scores two thumbs from the Blue Beast :thumbsup: :devil:

I'm leaving it like that !! period !! :awww:
