SWINGARM AND SHOCK LINKAGE  - ZERK FITTING (grease nipples)

drill and tap thread for Zerk fitting.

And 45 degree angled Zerk fitting installed to allow easy access with a straight grease gun fitting.

Two holes drilled in swingarm pivot spacer (1 each end on opposite sides). This is allows grease to work its way inside and between the spacer and axle out to bearing rollers.

The spacer for the dogbone/swingarm bearings and axle already has a hole drilled in it as though Suzuki intended to put a nipple on it but didn't. I didn't get a photo but it is this one here (highlighted)

Zerk fitting installed on swingarm/dogbone pivot point at angle where it won't get knocked off if struck.

Zerk fitting installed on Cushion lever lower pivot in a position where it won't get knocked off if struck.

No hole drilled in spacer for this point (above) because the spacer is not actually a spacer but the the inner bearing race through which the axle goes - no photo but is this one here highlighted.

Other two pivot points on the cushion lever were not fitted because there is nowhere for pumped grease to go and I would be drilling straight in to the bearing. Kind of made me question why I bothered with the other ones really, cause I am still going to have to pull it down periodically to maintain the whole shebang. Having said that the main, hardest working ones that are are also more prone to water damage (in my case) are covered and all I do is everynow and again pump a few times and stop immediately I feel any change in the resistance.
