Need help greasing rear linkage!

I am new to this forum and have read how its a must to do this, Is there a "how too" on here somewere? Is this hard to do?

Thanks in avance for any help given

Go over to the YZ forum and at the top of the page there is a "common threads" sticky. You will find a "how to" in there along with so much more.

easy as can be

take your time

Clean bike ,a beer, a can of contact cleaner,a roll of paper towels, a tub of grease , a few metric wrenches , sockets and a few hours

Thanks for the input guys, so is this an easy job to tackle if so I'll give it a bash this w/end!

The manual also provides step by step..

make sure when you tighten everything back up that the linkage actually moves , its very easy to crank everything down to tight .

i wouldn't do it without a torque wrench.

Same here, I torque just about anything worth torquing. It really surprises me sometimes how little it takes.

no kidding. clutch cover bolts= 7 ft. lbs.

I had 3 family members, all riders living in diff states, ask for a nice torque wrench for their bday or this past holiday. First thing they grab no matter the job.
