I finally got around to greasing the rear linkage on my 07 and found out they stopped using the string cheese. Made it pretty easy to clean up the bearings. The swingarm pivot bearings have a metal race that holds the pins in place. Makes it a little harder clean out but you dont have to mess with putting all the pins back in and that was nice. The swingarm pivot bearings were the only ones that were low on grease anyway I'm glad its done.
