I'm in the process of doing normal winter maintence on my atv. I was wondering if I should be greaseing my yoke joint on my bike? If so what type of grease?

Thanks

Thanks.. There is no grease fitting. I would have to pull back the rubber sleeve to get access to it.

No I know it doesn't have a grease fitting. But if you slide the rubber boot off a little bit you can get full access to the joint. There's no grease, but my concern is, that is a very improtant part, and it's always moving. I wasn't sure if I should just put a little grease on the pivit points of the yoke part of it???

I doubt that it would help very much, but I don't think it would hurt anything either, if you want to do it. Just make sure you get the rubber boot clamped back good so mud and dirt can't get in and stick to the grease and make the joint go bad quicker.

They are sealed needle bearings there is no way to get grease between the cap and post I wouldn't worry about it if was a common wearable part I would think Honda would have put a fitting there.
