Just checked mine and changed 1
Tighten it up but not to much so it won't spin then back it off a 1/4 turn is what I do
You can feel a bit of play if you get hold of the wheel and waggle it

Where you staying at estatit

As mick says shouldn't get warm and spin freely the 1/4 turn is the play it needs.

Cheers

You've got bearing savers. As long as they were full of grease at the beginning of the year, they'll be fine. Just take a spare set and a grease gun.

Sounds like a plan - been working for me over the last few seasons.

I haven't had to replace a set of bearings since I started using them. Clean and regrease a bit, but they're all still like new.
