Grease points?

Ive been told twice but im unable to find the points.

Now for greasing a 2010 outtie, I was told different amount of points to grease. I know there are 8 points on the front (4 on each side for 2 upper and lower arms).

What else is there and where?

What about differential grease and other stuff? What kind of stuff do you have to lubricate for the quads?

I downloaded a 2007 manual and it does not list (that I saw) anything about greaseing so im pretty stumped on this issue.

Eleven (11) zerks total.

4 on each side for a-arms like you mentioned plus one on front driveshaft( u-joint). and 2 on rear driveshaft. You will need to grease these regularly especially if you ride a lot of wet muddy stuff.

Im pretty much limited to no knowledge of joints and mechanical stuff but the driveshaft, thats the part with the Y looking joints together? and inside the Y parts (u joints I assume) is parts to grease?


If that is correct (I kinda assume it is) ive seen some stuff like a misc thing with a silver hose coming out of it in off of the frame with a part to grease as well, except it has a rubber cap on it. Actually ive seen 2-3 of these. What are these?

That is your brake caliper and that point is for bleeding your brakes. Do not try to grease it. Those 11 are the only grease points on my 2010. I grease them after every ride, but I ride alot of mud and water.

Shercas the driveshaft is the bar that connet your front and rear wheels to the transmision and this one has points that need to be greased, one to the front one and two to the rear one.

Sent him a PM with more detailed info on what to look for on greasing the zerks( maybe i should have just posted what to look for for everyone to see). Pictures are better, just don't have any right now of the areas to look for.

Greasing your zerks(grease fittings).

You already know where the fittings are on the a-arms i assume.

So the next three are on the drive shafts( yes they will be in the pivoting Y (yokes). You should have one right about the front underside plastic fender under protection area( i don't know how else to describe it). But you have to get your front wheel turned just right in order to get it( facing your quad , looking at the front of it, best place to get at this is from the front left side). Most use a small grease fitting or a needle fitting.

As for the 2 rear fittings, one should be located where the driveshaft connects to the rear brake disc. the other one should be about close to the chaincase drain.

Best method for getting at these would be to jack the rear of the atv up( using a jack or some kind of lift) and keeping the vehicle in neutral so you can manually rotate the rear wheels to get the best angle at the fittings. ( use a block of wood or something to keep the front end from rolling off the jack. Safety first.

I use green grease in mine, since it is waterproof and lasts about 10 times longer than regular marine grade grease).

www.greengrease.com won't work so try

www.greengrease.net


I find mine at tractor supply in the states.

hope this helps.
