Darin's zerk fitting???

Has anyone tried Darin's headset zerk fitting from the technical section? If so, how do you like it? Would you recommend it and what kind of grease are you using? :confused



If you haven't laid it down, you're not riding hard enough!

Hey James,

My guess on the grease would be lithium, water-proof, high temp. . .since that's what Yammie recommends in the manual. Should be easy to find a AutoZone or someplace like that. I haven't gotten to the zerk fittings yet. .I'll be interested to see. Been busy fixing my bike from another crash!! Too much gravity!


'00 WR; YZ modified, DSP exhaust system & UNI air filter, Jetting by the firm of Clark, James & Bryan; soon to have Dampner because I keep crashing (like it's going to help!). . .

Rode this past weekendin 100+ temps again and because the oil is carried in the frame some of the grease cooked out of the steering head.

Couple of pumps on the zerk. No problemo.
