    Question Grease fitting on a 2001 Gl1800 trike Roadmaster

    Hi

    Just got my GL1800 Roadmaster a couple months ago. Trying to do some maintenance on it cuz it seems like it wasn't done in a long time.

    Read in another thread that you are grease fittings on the drive shaft. Just wondering is there any other PLACES that needs to be greased??

    And what type of Grease most people are using??

    Have ridden for many years (two-wheelers), but this 3-wheeler there is a big difference, not only riding but maintenance too.

    Thanks in advance I do appreciate the help

    The only two grease fitting jerk's r on the drive shaft that I know of... I jack up rear of bike and rotate tires till you see the jerks, and shoot some molly grease into them until you see grease spitting out the edges...(takes only one/two pumps of the G. gun) ***Don't overfill***
