Ok. So I’m looking at better brand bearings for drive shaft when I replace it. Reading up on data for SKF 6009 2RS bearing it says it is filled with electric motor grease. Well thats not ideal. So whats a guy to do besides cleaning all the factory grease and repackaging it? Any bearings with grease designed for sled application? Not sure how many responses I will get this far after winter. Thanks

Stock bearings are peer bearrings (China sourced) stay away . bearings from NACHI,FAG,SKH ,,Timken,NTN, are a good bet

I used SKF 6009-2RS C3 and flushed out the grease it came with and used a different SKF grease they recommended. LGHP 2/0.4 SKF Hi-Temp Bearing Grease. Link: SKF
Operating temperature range –40 to +150 °C (–40 to +300 °F)

Well checked with SKF bearings to see what grease is in the SKF bearings I bought. Not good for cold temperatures. They own Peer bearings now so I got them to check what kind of grease comes in the Cat 6009 bearing. Turns out it’s way better grease. It’s aeroshell 7 good to -73c (-99f). So aftermarket bearings might need grease changed out. I bought the blue amsoil grease to repack my SKF. Would of tried the shell stuff if I had time.

I bought a large tube of the grease SKF recommended for our application and changed it out.
I have familiarity with Aeroshell #7 from my working career as some of the ball bearings we used had that grease in them. Very good low temperature grease.
