What a messy job it is topping up the grease in the HOC shafts, castor wheels etc! I'm just wondering how youz deal with the overflow and are you a 1 or 2 pump man or a pump it in till ya can see new grease coming out the weap holes man.

I've been going through rags like theres no tomorow and It just makes me think.......There gota be a far less messy way to preform this type of maintanece.

Cheers.

I grease until I see it coming out. Grab a shop towel and wipe off the excess. Messy, but I KNOW it is greased thoroughly.

I grease until it comes out, then wipe it up with a rag.When I'm riding a WB on the velke after a grease job, sometimes I have grease up my shins from excess grease flying up off the knuckle or off the axle fittings.Sucks, but at least I know its well lubed.
