Creates a lot of pressure for sure, enough to push the bearing sleeve fitted inside the Wellgo pedal body out of position if too much grease is used. Best to grease little and often!

The WPD801s are cheap and good though, I reckon, the bearings seem to go on forever if occasionally greased via the end cap and the pedal release mechanisms have been pretty hard wearing, though the bearing sleeve (and small cartridge bearing on the outer end of the axle) are probably not that efficient.
