On my '86 Yamaha Inviter the front bearings are sealed. Anyone have any tips on how to lubricate them or do they need to be replaced? Steering is getting more difficult this year than last and when it is cold, it almost feels like it is seized.
High speed is no problem but under 10-15mph, you really have to "reef" on it.
I used some white lithium grease. It seemed to melt with heat a little easier and went alot faster than the standard grease. Takes a bit of constant pressure but it works.. then work the bearing for awhile after .. 5 mins is good. Then try to put some more in. A little more might squish in
I found this link on Ronnies that might help you figure out if your bearings have to have the clip removed or not. I dont think I did remove mine, I cant remember now tho. Heres the link. Its for a 90 Inviter but should be close
