Front Wheel Bearings

I bought this set of All Balls a few years ago. They are a well traveled set having been across most of the continent in my side bag.

@Gunnert mentioned he always has to add a bit of grease to new wheel bearings.

I am getting ready to install this set in my K bike and thought I would check the grease. Btw, Duane has graciously offered to install my set in May but being a DIY'er I thought I would try myself first.

It looks to my uneducated eyes there is enough grease in these bearings. Agreed?

Paul, that's by far the most grease I've seen in a set of bearings for a K1600. You're good to go.
