I am installing my new shifter brace and I noticed a long tube that look to be a grease fitting. Is that what it is?

This reminds me of that time my 350lb brother brought his new to him GSX-R (it was pretty funny looking seeing him on it) over for me to check out. When I rode it, it had absolutely no brakes, wouldn't stop at all. I checked his pads and rotors and they were black with some kind of grease. Turned out the day he got it he tried to use a grease gun on his caliper Zerk fittings because the brakes were dragging a little. He thought that's where you were suppose to lube your brakes. At least he didn't know to crack them open first :lol: :lol:
