How To Flush Bearings

Recommended Posts

I have the shimano ci4+ brand new I heard a lot of people saying to flush the bears because they are packed with grease. I have never taken a reel apart before but I know I could do it. Should I try to flush the bearing or just leave it be. Thanks everyone

If your Ci4+ is less than a season old..:Victory:

I would use it for a complete season to let it brake in, then do a pro style brake down and service the reel...

 

Good Luck & Tight Lines! :fishing1:

When I received my new Chronarch I could tell that the bearings were over oiled.  They are easy to remove, soak in lighter fluid for a few minutes, dry well and apply a tiny drop of a quality bearing oil before installing.  There are two bearings under the cast control cap and one under the left cover.  You will see a significant difference in free spool.  You will find the antirust bearings for the spool to be excellent bearings.
