    Nope - you can remove the plastic top hat and grease the bearings, but it breaks easily - they are not meant to be serviceable.

    I've tried a few times because I am cheap, but without much success.

    XT and XTR have better sealing than Deore and last much longer - worth the extra.
    I don't do smileys.
