sounds strange huh..seems like they would stick one some where
maybe at the rear axel or at the top of the swing arm.but nope....
i just found out yesterday that the 2 by your brake calipers are brake bleeder.s i didn't know this and greesed em' about 10 months ago..i don't guess it hurt anything we'll see...

Yes, greasing the swingarm pivots is a pain in the ***, I don't know why they didn't just put fittings on them. THe A-arms are less of a pain, but it still would be nicer for fittings on those too.

Why are you greasing your plastic polyeurathane bushings? I've never reased my quad.

Polyurethane busings use a different kind of grease, and I would imagine it would need to be greased evrey so often, I have them on the sway bars on my car, I re-grease them about once a year, but I'd imagine with the conditions a quad see's they would definately need it.

when i took my a-arms off they looked like pooh..they needed something in there bad... i figured greese would work better than orange juice so i used that.... it was squeeking pretty bad...it was just time for a once over....
