Might pay to tap and add a grease nipple. Function before form.

I was just thinking that myself.  THANKS

With great success, I did do just that w the BMWs clutch lever.

It has tiny needle bearings and is virtually un-servicable without a huge teardown.

Thanks Brodie, for the inspiration to actually make it better for myself.

Otherwise, I just woulda sat here "thinking" how it would be good idea.   ::)







Long as the drill and taps handy, this happened at the rear brake pivot.

Had to grind a couple threads off zerk.  AND clean up a bit w rat tail.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.
Sr250, Gs750, Z50A, XV1100, A10, Z160A.

And I continue to contend that a rat bike (or rod) should FUNCTION very well. To hell with appearance. You are definitely doing this right!

Aw, but just a bit ago I remembered that I haven't put o-rings on the top plugs yet. THAT would have been messy!
