Not saying it can't be done, but there's more to it than taping in a zerk fitting. There's no way for the grease to get where it needs to be, if that's all you do.

I agree the zerk does have to be in the right place . how ever just having grease in that inclosed space is better than no grease in there at all.

on my ltz's swingarm I made it so the grease would enter through the center of needle bearings casing /race . trust me them things is hard, to hard to drill .but a hole had to be there, other wise the PSI of the grease going in would just push the seal out and not go into the bearing .

You will see when you take it apart, and oh yeah have fun with the cir-clips. Where you drill the hole for the zerk, you will also need to cut a passage way to let the grease flow to each end of bearings.

Let's move this elsewhere, we're trashing the member intro.

Overpacking a bearing destroys it ! A sealed one has the correct amount of grease already... there needs to be some space for the balls to run in else friction and heat build up turns the greae to liquid and you end up with no grease at all.

running bearings dry destroys them. forcing to much grease into a bearing has the poetical of blowing out the seals which inturn lets dirt in .
