There is 6 on the sway bar link; one on each joint and one more on each side where the sway bar connects to the frame. There is 2 more on the U joint in the drive shaft.

I use Amsoil synthetic Marine grease and I grease it after I wash it. Since I wash it after every ride I grease it after every ride to keep the squeaks down. Now I gotta find a way into that steering stem on the G2.

I use plain old farm and fleet marine wheel bearing grease, good enough for marine/wet use, good enough for me. I think the key is not in the grease but that you do it often or at least 2-3 times per year or more depending on where you ride.

Does 16 zerks on a 2008 cam am outlander MAX XT 500 seem right or are there less or more? Just bought it today and want to go thru it with a fine toothed comb - thanks!

That just seems crazy high amount as compared to my older ATV's having like 4-5 or so total, but I may be missing some on those ATV's as well I guess, not sure?

Looks like they're still trying to see if it'll work on the G-2 but here's an idea : http://www.can-amtalk.com/forums/top...-stem-bushing/

I found all the zerks that mentioned but why is there nothing on the lower trailing arm, by the plastic g2 cap that covers the tube from side to side. ?
