I do keep them topped up and have a little sprung loaded releaf valve so that I don't blow the seals out the back when topping up.

I'm running out of grease and need some more stocks. What do you recommend?

I use Castrol Pyroplex Blue (don't eat it or get it in your eye ):

I buy the big drums, but you can get it in tube form too. Quick search brought this up:

2 x 400g cartridges of Castrol Pyroplex Blue 4x4 | eBay

Though you may be able to get it cheaper elsewhere. It's quite expensive, but I'll be damned if I change someone's bearings and they ring me up to tell they've gone the next season, for the sake of the grease!
