    Hello I bought a grease gun to greae the shafts of my 1200 and virage (2000) but it seems that the tip of my gun is not the right size or something cuz grease just comes out the side every time no matter what I do.....do I need a specific size tip for my gun? If so, let me know which it is, thanks.

    the fitting your trying to put grease in is a needle grease fitting you need to get regular grease fittings to put in there temparaley to grease them up or go to the auto parts stors and but the needle for your grease gun

    What you need is called a zerk fitting you can get them at a auto parts store

    grease gun

    Sometimes if u push down on the gun fitting it will loosen up the zirk fitting. They sometimes jam.

    Would there be a problem if the zerk fitting is installed in place of the needle fitting, and just left there?
    Would the zerk leak grease during operation?
