    ATM bearing ABEC 5 are sealed bearings, meaning that you can't readily improve their performance with other lubricants from outside. They have flexible side seals that are supposed to keep dirt and water out of the bearing, and retain the bearing grease that lubricates the bearing's internal working parts. If these seals have failed, the bearing will run rough and perhaps begin to make noise and generate heat, as its internal rollers hammer and grind rust particles and contamination into the bearing races.

    There is nothing you can do to "fix" sealed bearings; when they go bad, you replace them.

    spray the bearings with some good peneetrating oil and work the bearings (spin them) they are rusted from the rain You need to sray them occasionaly with some lubricant to keep them from rusting You might want to try silicone spray
