MP3 greaser bolt/nipr I get my 2013 MP3 300 this week. Due to its age I want to do basic service ASAP. Having noted the steering bearing disc I want to pack them. I have seen there is a tool)bolt I can use to get it done. However after much looking I can't find the bolt/nipple. Any link would be v appreciated. I have health issues so the easier the better, oh plus I'm male

It's just one of the original bolts drilled right through with a 6mm threaded grease nipple screwed into the head of the bolt. Dead simple. I'm sure Fowlers of Bristol have them listed . Where in scotland are you.

Just checked Fowlers its not in stock. Looks like it will be a messy hold tight, I have mobility issues and can't maintain some positions for long..

ScooterWest in San Diego appears to have them in stock if you can't find them anywhere else.

Does anyone know the exact dimensions of the bolt needed to drill and fit with a zerk (diameter/thread pitch/length) to do the grease job? Thanks so much!
