Grease question

What grease should I use on my 650l swingarm? Thanks :banghead:

I have a tub of Belray Waterproof grease that I use for everything from bearings to the airfilter lip, seems to work fine.

Most any kind of grease will work. The waterproof greases will offer a little better resistance to water. I use moly lithium grease for the swingarm and linkage bearings as those bearings need all the lube help that they can get.

If you are going to pump some in the zerk fitting, it's important not to mix different soap base greases. These days most greases are lithium based so it might not be as much of an issue, but I'm not sure.

Pumping in more grease is no substitute for a real disassembly, cleaning , and regreasing. If it's been more than a few years it's time to take it apart.

i use Maxima grease but this one and many others are fine

ive been using castrol wheel brg grease(FREE at work!).:banghead:

thanks guys :banghead:

Like it has been said,any grease is better than no grease at all.I got a little bit lazy and had to spend a few $$$ getting new bearings and spent a whole afternoon drilling the pivot bolt out.Yep,money that could have bought new parts and time not spent ridding.Have you checked your steering stem bearings lately?They're known to come with too little grease from factory....Good luck.

i use corrosion block brand marine/wheel bearing grease. water proof and has extra corrosion protection. My dad sells it to fisherman for their boats and equipment. works really well.
