Front wheel is frozen up.

The right front wheel is frozen up and will not turn. I took tire off and looked on the back side of the hub. There was a grease fitting (I think) on the back of the hub. Do you think that may be the problem. If it is a grease fitting, I have never greased it.

Hope someone can help.

What kind of bike? I think you may be seeing the brake bleeder valve ( can't remember the technical name of it ).

Sorry about forgetting to put the kind of ATV I have. It is a TRX250 2000 Honda Recon with less than 100 hours. It has always been enclosed inside a metal building. I know I have neglected maintenance on it because I used it so little.

Thanks for your help.

Yeah, it shouldn't have a grease fitting on the back of the hub, you're probably seeing the bleeder screw for the wheel cylinder.

Most 4-wheeler problems are caused by a loose nut connecting the handlebars and the seat!!

You only need two tools in life -- WD-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the WD-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
