I finally decided to grease the shock linkage on my '06 WR450, I bought it new a year ago and have put about 1000mi on it so I know I'm late, I read the article in the tech forum and found it helpfull, but after dissasembly it seems that the bearings are full of grease not the string cheese described in the article, they seemed well greased with quality grease, is it possible that the factory is greasing the bearings now? it doesnt apear that it was ever disassembled before and I seriously doubt that the dealer would have done it (they didnt even know how many gears it had) im going to clean it out and grease while I have it apart but it doent seem nessesary, any ideas on why it looks greased? p.s. I love this bike, it has been 100% flawless.
