750 GT Grease Nipple Removal

Post by gewwa » Tue May 24, 2011 7:42 pm

Hi Folks,

I want to remove the grease nipple from my 750 GT swing arm before sending off to the powder coater. This maybe easy for some but for me, I'm challenged... :oops: It's base is round (can't use an open ender) and using multigrips, lightly, I'm afraid of damaging the nipple. Is there a secret to removing it, or should I just squeeze harder on the nipple to remove it...thx

Best thing to do is just put a pair of grips on it and pull it out! It is a puch fit in the arm.

When you get it back from the powder coaters, drill and tap it to take a new grease nipple that way there wont be any grit in the nipple.
