I ain't no genius, but.....

I think that I found the vibration.

What weight of grease do I need to use to mellow this out?

As soon as you find a zerk fitting going to it, I'm sure that any synthetic, water proof, grease would just fix that void right up. Glad you found it in time.

I had the bike all loaded for a trip to Anacortes, but I felt a vibration through the bars when I got up to road speed, followed by a "chirp." That will definitely make you backtrack and ride like you're on eggshells. :O

Obviously you would use goose grease.

You'd better walk back down the road very slowly and keep your eyes peeled for those missing parts!

So, what you're saying is take a hike and look for my missing balls?

For those who may unfamiliar with the process of removing and replacing wheel bearings, here's an excellent Delboy's Garage video that explains the procedure in minute detail. He explains how and why thing are done a certain way.
