Wrench rear spindles

I was greasing my rear spindles and I noticed that my bottom rear grease insert fitting was missing. Does anyone know the best way to fix this? I have never fixed a grease fitting insert before.

If it broke off then just use and easy out to remove the rest of it and replace with a new one...

Just screw a new one in and then grease it. Done deal.

Angry

I just recently started doing my own service work on the rhino and today I went back to grease the rear spindle and just noticed the lower grease fitting was just gone. I don't know what caused it to be gone. I did not see any scratches or signs of trauma who knows! I had been taking it into yamaha every 500 miles to get it serviced but I noticed that the yamaha "experts" had left my crankcase breather hose unhooked from the air filter box the last time I had taken it to them to get it seviced! It just pisses me off that a customer thinks he is doing the right thing by taking it to the "experts" to get the best possible service performed on his expensive toy and they suck ass at doing their job. So now I'm doing all of my own service work and also saving some money and doing a better job than the experts. I don't think the yamaha "experts" have ever touched these fitting while I was paying them to service it,not a drop of grease on the fittings! Sorry back to original thread, I just needed to vent!

How are those grease fittings secured?Do they screw in?

I went to Oreily's and Napa and could not find the correct size of fitting. When I look at the hole that the fitting came out of I see no threads. Also when I found that the fitting was missing there was small spring present in the hole. Is that part of the grease fitting?

the spring is part of the original fitting, first you need to remove what is left and then replace it....
