When greasing the swing arm with a grease gun, how much lubricant should one inject into the fitting? I don't recall when I had it disassembled, is there a place for excess grease to escape?

Thanks

You'll know when it's full.....excess will come out the joints...

Ah. Ok. Thanks, 66. Should I in fact inject that much in... or is grease coming out of the joints too much?
I guess how else would I know...

Thanks for the quick reply!

If you perform maintenence regularly, one pump will "show' at the joints.....The first 'fill" may take a few...... Wipe off excess so it doesn't end up on chain, tires, etc....
