Re: lube time

Once a year??!! Whatever floats your boat I guess.
Most people don't ride as hard or as often as we do, but we grease the shock mounts and that stuff every 3 or 4 months.On our race quads it's usually part of getting our quad ready for a race too.
As for lubing the chain I agree.As often as you can remember.

Re: lube time

well I really only fiddle with the axle carrier, once or twice a year....

everything from swing-arm pivot bolt to a-arms I do much more frequent....but I am not crazy about lubing even though I know I should.....its just a plain and simple pain in my ass


just took you my swing-arm pivot for the first time [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] today!!
