How to Clean Skateboard Bearings. Riding a skateboard can be a blast, but not
when your skateboard gets hard to handle because of dirty bearings. Here’s how to keep them clean. You will need Old clothes Newspapers or a
plastic tarp A skate tool Cleanser Lubricant and soft, clean rags. Step 1. Cleaning bearings can get messy. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty,
and lay down newspapers or a plastic tarp to protect the floor if you’re inside. Step 2. Using the skate tool, remove the skateboard’s
wheels and then the bearings, which are circular devices that connect the wheel to the axle,
allowing the wheels to spin freely. Step 3. Pop the bearings loose from their casings. There should be eight bearings in all, two
for each wheel. Step 4. Gently wash away any dirt or grime with a
rag and cleanser appropriate for use on steel, rubber, and plastic, such as rubbing alcohol
or acetone. Avoid oil-based cleaners, which can leave
a sticky residue. For a deeper clean, soak the bearings in a
jar of cleaner for a few minutes. Step 5. Wipe away any excess cleanser with a rag,
and then spray each bearing with lubricant. Don’t be stingy with the lubricant; really
hose down each bearing! Repeat this step for each bearing, setting
them aside on your rags as you go. For a fast tune-up, leave the wheels and bearings
on and spray lubricant directly onto the wheel. Wipe away excess lubricant. Step 6. Wrap a bearing in a soft cloth and give it
a shake to speed up the draining process. Repeat for each bearing. Step 7. Reattach the bearings and wheels to your skateboard. Check to make sure they spin freely. If they do, you’re ready to go! Did you know The first skateboards were sold
in 1958 by Bill and Mark Richard in their California surf shop.

    A main ingredient in WD-40 is vanilla extract. Whish is basically a dirt magnet. And it doesn't lubricate your bearings for very long.

  41. OBAMA_9347 says:

    This is the most retarded way to clean bearings. You use citrus based cleaner and shake the bearings in it and then you rinse them and dry them with a hair dryer or heat gun and then only put two to three drops of speed cream or whatever lubricant you prefer.

  42. Vanguard Music says:

    you shouldnt put lots of lube on because it collects dirt i only put a few drops

  43. Vanguard Music says:

    you should be using citrus based cleaner

  44. RDizzo01 says:

    Did you know! You fucked up your bearing's with that rubbing alcohol.

  45. Ally rios says:

  46. Ryan Ray says:

  47. DynastyFPS says:

    FYI don't do this. Use a natural cleaner containing citrus and go easy on the lube. This is a video on how to fuck your bearings up.

  48. Fisk Skateboards says:

    never ever do this…. us like 1 to 2 drops of the speed cream

  49. Ahmd Esketit says:

  51. ki11bunny says:

    2. use a tooth brush to get in and get all the dirt out.
