I'm sceptical but open to persuasion. My current policy is to replace the bearings every year.

I've not bearing savers but similar idea where it's a grease nipple and I just pump a bit through after recovering. A bit does get onto the back plate but never got on the brakes.

Thanks for all the info,

I think bearing savers are the way to go as the bearing currently fitted have only lasted about half the year and looking at them there is corrosion already.
