Own a 2020 Wildcat XX, I recently purchased the greasing tool for the wheel bearings. Glad I did, only 1600 miles and already slight scoring on outside of rotor race, the surface that contacts the inside of the bearing. I removed it easily with steel wool but some very slight pitting remained. Verdict is, better pay attention to those bearings. Very difficult to identify OEM grease, looks like white lithium. I chose the Valvoline HD Palladium water resistant with 500 F degree dropping point for wheel bearings. I hope it's compatible. NAPA stocks it. Not too tough a job, videos on You Tube. Torque the bearings to correct load.

Does anyone know where to get a greasing tool for the XX? Amazon is out of stock, Revco and Royal only sell the tool for other brands. Try the dealer?

They come and go. Get it now or save to your wishlist and keep checking. It'll be back in stock.

I have used Bell Ray molybdenum grease for years on my desert race cars. Absolutely no sign of wear ever.

X2 on 775 products! If I didn’t 3D print the ones I have I would’ve bought from 775.

Thank you. I checked on Ebay there is a guy in Tennessee I think that makes them, and markets on that platform. About $114.00 Cdn incl. postage.
I'm going to call the local dealer, see what they can do.
I bought mine off of Facebook for like 49.99 and it works awesome!
on another note get yourself an impact that will support the 250 foot lbs of torque on the bearings.

So I found out what riding in north central Pennsylvania does to stock bearings without grease. 850 miles on my xx and all 4 wheel bearings are shot as well as all 4 spherical bearings and both outer tie rod ends.
