View Full Version : What should I grease?

08-21-2001, 06:46 PM
I have greased the swingarm, axle, rear suspension, a-arms, front shocks, and the upper steering bushing. Could someone please list all of the grease points. What about the upper and lower balljoints, tie-rods, lower steering bushing, and front wheel bearings?????

I think you did a good job. When in doubt, grease it.

Really... You should oil or grease everything but the brake rotors and grips :D

Don't forget the rear brake pedal shaft. If that thing seizes up, it'll be damn hard to get out!! Been there, done that..

OK am I just stupid or does our 400ex not have any grease zirks?

No grease zircs Nausty....you're not stupid. :devil

There are no grease zirks anywhere on our 400ex. They are internal so you don't have to ever grease them, they want you to have to just buy new ball joints after they prematurely wear, so the top level executives at Honda can afford to buy there son a new 400 so he'll stop swearing at the dinner table! Everyone is always ripping on banshees, as much as I love my 400, at least my banshee had grease zirks! That is probably the sole reason everone should buy a banshee before their extinct, or you could get really picky and buy one because of its motor!

Just grease any moving part on the bike,atleast you will know every thing is moving smoothly.

I have noticed that too. On my 300ex there are no grease zirks anywhere. Honda needs to put some on for preventitive maintainence.
