Anyone fitted grease nipples to a 650r swingarm & linkages?

Recommended Posts

Hi all.

My old 600 had grease nipples fitted to the swingarm and linkages and I was wondering if anyone has tried it on the 650r?

Did the 600 come from the factory with grease nipples or was i fortunate enough to have a smart previous owner?? It was so easy to just give it a couple of pumps with the grease gun.

It would make life easier if this could be done.

Any thoughts?

If the swingarm and linkage has the little flat spots that look like a zerk would fit, drill it and tap and install some zerks.

I'd just take it apart so you can clean the shavings out.

I just had mine out for maintenance. I will be adding zerks to my links, but the cages need to be removed before drilling or you'll drill right into them.
