Okay, I think it is time for me to lube and grease the raptor.

Is there a certain recommended grease to use?


How many nipples are there and locations?

How much/hard lube do I apply to the nipples? What is the process?

Thanks for all the help.

TT

There is 9 total 3 at the rear linkage and 3 for each set of A-Arms.
Go to an auto parts store and get a piece that goes on the end of a grease gun. I have one. its real narrow.

not sure about the raptor but on most other yamaha quads there is also a zerk where the steering stem goes into the frame

Hey I use a thin grease not a thick one the reason for that is that you do not want to clog any of the nip and you should grease everyother ride
