Has anyone ever been able to get grease in the front driveshaft's U-joint grease zerk? I got some in the front I can't see the rear one? I have some of them needle zerks that I could drill a U-joints cap, what have you done for maintaining these joints? Thanks, Artie

On my 2011 Rhino I used a needle nose grease fitting and was able to grease the front u joint after taking off the cover between the seats. Thinking about making a access hole in panel cover for future greasings.

Thanks, snowfighter. I have been reading a long thread about this. I have some low profile needle zerks that use a needle attatchment, I wouls have to drill one of my u-joint caps, then grease would be a breeze! I let you-all know, Artie

I couldn't get grease in mine using a needle. By removing the 3 bolts on the front differential I was able to move it forward enough to slide the shaft out of the u-joint yoke. Then it was simple to access the zerk plus I lubed the splines on the shaft end. With a little logical design it would have been a simple job instead it was a pain in the butt. Thanks Yamaha.
