Whenever I put in new bearings anywhere on the bike I always "carefully" pry the seals off of both sides of the bearing and fill them with a good synthetic grease. Then push the seals back into the bearing. (Use a fine pick to pry up the seals) Bearings usually have a shocking lack of factory grease.

Be carefull about adding new grease. Too much grease and you get a process known as "churning" in the lube and it starts to break down the grease. Mark
