All,

Took my rear rim off for first time ( on the 10R that is) and there was absolutly zero lube or grease on the rear axel. The rim has never been off the bike...

All of my 8 previous bikes Ive taken apart have always has lube/grease on both axels.


Is this just my 10R or what???

BTW - my 10R has been garaged its whole life...

Grease = weight lol
I noticed the same thing on my 10 and the new 14, they don't slap grease on everything like the Zukes do.

Suggestion: Take the swingarm pivot bolt out, and grease that up and re-install it.

If you don't, you might eventually end up with a situation like I have on another older bike: non-removable swingarm because the pivot bolt is seized in the bushing inside. I'm hoping those bearings never go bad ...

You should have spelled AXLE correctly and you would have come up with more results.

Are you still mad about the exhuast???
Thats normal. very little grease. if you look at the rear hub through those large hole. you will see the axle is expose . less grease is less dirt on the axle. this way. when you pulled the axle out. you won't pull dirt into the bearings.

Less grease = less grit... makes sense

true, but he has no grounds when he said ...

"I am not that concerned about gains in HP but rather sound, looks and price"

LOSER!
:crackup:



Honestly, I DONT care what you do for a living.
But what do you expect when you have a name like that...

If my name was "I_Love_Fat_Chicks." You may assume that... well... I love fat chicks.

Im done with this squid!

That would be me being honest with myself about my abilities

Try it sometime, maybe that'll keep your from letting your delusional skills get you killed on the road.

I am under no illusions of actually using the increased HP ( unlike you )

If names represented what we do for a living your name would be cacksucker

No get back to work biatch and put some head into it
