I thought you authored the quintessential thread on "Greasing that #$%& farking front U" . . . . :grin:

At 113,000 miles, I'm "pretty sure" I got grease in it two or three times.  I've just resigned myself to pulling the swingarm every third rear tire change . . .

every time I have the rear wheel off, I use this nipple attached to my grease gun hose. the point of it is directed inside the zerk fitting, by depressing the tiny ball. it is still at a slight angle and a little bit of grease escapes, but with care and even pressure applied, the job gets done. I have an '02 frame,.... unsure of early frames

Some say that a window can be cut in the collar around the front U-joint, but it is the inside of the swingarm itself that blocks my access.

I won't be cutting holes in that! :o

I have a rig like Footgoose's Lincoln that is about 6'' long and bendable . I have NO problem greasing the front joint . I have a bout a dozen adapters to grease just about everything .

I do miss the way @dangerous could title a thread and make the original post sing . . . :oldgit:

I think I finally have enough experience and insight to add something to that epic thread . . . :luigi:
