Non-contact Steel shields coated with rubber are used to protect your bearings. The shield stops grit from entering in while keeping lubricant in. Shields improve bearing longevity. YOLO bearings come stock with one side shielded to make cleaning and lubricating fast and effective. You can also add a shield to the other side to help keep the grit out but remember to remove the shield on the ball side prior to oil and/or cleaning.
Yolo suggest using one shield on the open ball side of each bearing. You may use a shield on both sides but this makes it more difficult to oil/service. However, two shields locks in the oil and keeps out debris more effectively.
- Sold in 16 packs (16 each)
- Yolo bearing shields work with all Yolo Bearings.

YOLO COLORED BEARING SHIELDS
Removing Rubber Shields:
Using a thumbtack or something similar, use the pointed end of the tack to enter the inside portion of the shield. Gently pry up, moving your pin around the inner ring of the bearing until the shield releases. Do not force the bearing up (Shields may bend with force).
Replacing Rubber Shields:
Set a bearing on a hard flat surface, place the new or original shield flat on the bearings with the center of the shield lined up with the center of the bearing, then press firmly on the side and work your fingers around the bearing. You may hear or feel a small click, as well the shield will lay flat. if there are any high spots then press again in that area. If you spin the bearing and you feel a high spot or the shield feels out of round then the shield is not seated 100%. If the bearing turns smoothly then you are all set.
