I have just completed the swing arm bearing lube, and the relay arm lube required at 25,000 kms (16,000 miles). This is a big job, and took quite some time for me, because I don't have much mechanical experience. None the less, here are my impressions:
-the hardest part is deciding whether or not to do it myself. Watching Twowheelobsession's video on how to do this service will give you all the information you need to do the job. I watchd the video about 5 times in total, and took many notes. I made note of the exact time in the video where various parts were being removed, so that I could quickly look at that information again if I needed to. When I got stuck, or uncertain, then I would go back into the house and review the appropriate segment, and then proceed. This worked just fine.
-the most difficult part of the actual job was cutting off the two bolts that hold the centre stand on to the frame. I used a sawzall, or reciprocating saw, and that was effective.
-I used Lucas REd and TAcky lithium compound grease to lube everything except the drive shaft gears, the u-joint, and the rear wheel drive hub. I ued Honda moly to do those three areas.
-I spent a lot of time cleaning and lightly greasing many parts, in such a way as to slow down corrosion from rain.
-be absolutely certain to stabilize the front forks, as that will stop the bike from moving when you must remove the centre stand. The video details how to support the bike.
-I was quite concerned about getting several things back together. In hindsight, I need not have been . They went together quite smoothly. Reinstalling the swing arm into its correct place and putting that axle back in took only 15 minutes or less. Reinstalling the rear wheel, and getting the calipers back on, by myself, took only a few minutes as well, whereas I thought it would be difficult doing it alone. (I'm retired, 5'9" and 150 lbs, and found I could manage it quite well..do as he says in the video!)
As a final word, for those considering doing this , do go thru the video and make note of all the tools and sockets you will need, and have them all on hand before you start the job. I went to order the two bolts that get cut off, and found they are back ordered at the national level. I substitued.
Good luck to those who decide to take it on.
