    Thats the mid shaft bearing which is a sealed bearing, the grease fitting is there to lube the seal only and one to two pumps with a grease gun is all you need no more.

    The grease fitting is directly on the intermediate housing, unlike the FX which has a hose running down to it. Pre 2010 are completly sealed & have no grease requirement, 2010 on need grease. I am not sure of the quantity for VX........the FX requires 7 grams annually or at 100 hrs whichever is first.

    Thanks Dave, I can't seem to locate the grease nipple on the VX, is it under the cover plate which has 4 bolts in it? I have started to undo those bolts but they seemed to stay very tight so i was worried they dont just secure the cover plate?

    What year did you check?

    2010 on definitely has the grease nipple, before that they do not. As said previously it is directly on the housing, unlike the FX which has a hose running down to it.
    Check the parts list to see location.......My Yamaha Prompt - Parts Catalog

    It is under Jet Unit 2
