VXS Intermediate housing lubrication question
Basically, how much grease should I use? The manual is no help and simply says:
Intermediate housing lubrication:
1. Lubricate the intermediate housing
through the grease nipple
Thanks for any help

I have a FZR I pump mine up @ the oil changes, I fill it slowly till the rubber tube gets hard and cant be squeezed with your fingers , over pumping it up can blow the seal out......i have not had any issues doing it like that

My service manual does not specify the amount either which is bullshit. Is it a 2011 or 2012? The 12's don't have a rubber tube anymore, the grease nipple is directly on the intermediate housing. On my 12 without the tube I pumped in 15 grams for the initial greasing.

there is no quantity since there is no way yamaha will know how much grease is gone.
Just pump it till you can feel small resistance while pumping.

for '11 models, pinch the bottom of the tube with your fingers close to the housing. Pump the grease in until you feel the grease. Then squeeze a pump or two more and your done.

And pump it in veryyy slow so the seal doesn't get blown out.
