Could someone direct me in the right direction please in regards to fitting grease nipples to the links on the
Girdraulic front suspension?
I tried to find this information on the site but I must be using the wrong terminology.
In "Know thy Beast" E.M.G Stevens says to fit nipples to the FF3 on the eccentric ends at 4 o'clock and 8 o'clock. I get that the part. Its at the spindle side Id like to know how many and there location please?
Thank you
Cheers Brian

I added some grease fittings to mine when I put my bike together. Some of them ended up in spots that were not that convenient, but they work. I have been using them to squirt heavy oil into the bushings about twice a year. For some reason I thought that oil was supposed to be better than grease for this purpose. Maybe it is because I knew that the oil was better for the Norton Commando swing arm bushings. Should I switch to grease? At least it won't run down the fork legs.

See post #3 in this thread. No need for any drilling, no need for any grease nipples being added to the girduralics - just use the new, case hardened, centre and cross drilled spindles that are fitted with grease nipples. Readily available from V3 who advertises in MPH . They work a treat!
