Grease.

Postby GallowGlass » Mon Oct 12, 2015 12:22 pm



I understand there are grease points on these bikes and would appreciate if someone could tell me where they are located.

Unless I missed something, the Clymer Manual does not show this.

Yes there is one for sure and it is located on the right side rear just forward of the bottom shock mount on the final drive. At least 50% or more of a molly grease is recommend. There might be one on the center stand. Some guys add this to be able to grease the shaft. Did I miss any?

Following up on this Red, is there any way for me to tell how much grease to inject?

The Honda manual will tell you when ( every 8000 miles) and what type ,but not how much, at least what I read . I usually pump about 4 squirts from a pistol grip type grease gun. Somebody will know here or at least have a thought on it.

Yup, what he said.

There are no other grease zerks/nipples points on it. There are other points that need to be grease though.
The rear drive 'spider' splines with the same Moly Grease, wheel bearings (if you still have the original) & steering head bearings with Lithium grease.

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
