How much grease on the front and rear axels?

Recommended Posts

Just doing all the regular maintenance and want to know how much to put on front and rear as well as the swing arm rod.

Thanks!

I put a very thin coat on. But then I have my wheels off often so it never goes dry, I am always cleaning and recoating them.

Put as muchin there as it will take. Any excess will squish out anyway

Just enough to cover the metal, you are just trying to keep water from corroding the axles. Clean whatever squeezes out to prevent dirt from sticking to the seals.

I fill it up with grease. When you put it back together, the excess will squeeze out. I do this to keep the dust, dirt and water from entering.
