I don't mean to thread jack, but I am picking up my 08 soon and was wondering exactly where I should grease evrything before I ride. Anyone have a link? (please don't tell me to search, if I would have found something, I would not have posted! :-)) You want to grease the steering head bearings, the swingarm bearings, and all of the linkage bearings. Also would be a good idea to get a good packing of grease in the wheel bearings, and lightly coat the axles and all the linkage bolts and swingarm shaft before reinstalling.
