I purchased my GRiSO 2 years ago and I figured it was finally time to give the swingarm, dogbone, and forked arm a proper greasing.  

The swingarm bearings had more grease than what my Norge had, but not enough.  The dogbone needle bearings had a smidge of grease, but the forked arm needles were very dry.

I had just performed this same job on my Norge a couple of days ago and had my learning curve intact.  This only took me 2.5 hours from start to finish.

Nice work! I found a similar amount of grease (very little) when I recently checked my '17. Steering head will be next when I swap out the original Metzelers. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]  

Tough to see in your picture, but was your rear airbox drain tube routed properly from the factory with a plug at the end? Oddly, mine was about 5" long with no plug--fortunately caught early otherwise the engine would be ingesting dirty air. Shocked

Yes, it was done proper.
