Just replaced the wheel bearings (they were good but...)
The weather's been bad, a lot of rain an humidity, the rear bearings were fine but the front ones I've notice some water in them, now, I don't know if it was because the rain or the high humidity, I suppose it's not good to have water inside the bearings, and that is main cause to failure, never the less I replace them
Any one come up whit some mod to help prevent this, something like a cap???

The seals in decent RS bearings should be waterproof. You would need a lot of pressure to water inside, and I can only see that happening with a jetwash.

I stop jet washing 4 years ago when I, almost, remove the paint from the swing arm whit a hot jet washer that we use to clean the trucks engines with
the bearings were skf 2rsh, whit only 10000 km, again, they were not bad, no rust with grease stile on them
