Hey guys. While I have the skid removed to replace hyfax. Besides checking the grease on the boogie wheel bearings and greasing the zerk fittings, do you grease these spots as well? Thinking it wouldn't hurt but wanted to check first since it doesn't look like the factory greased the bushings that attach skid to tunnel.

Also, does anyone know the torque specs on the 4 bolts that attach skid to tunnel for MY22 Matryx VR1?
I drill all those pivot points and grease with needle grease gun.

I believe another benefit is the suspension works more consistently. I have been doing this since Polaris quit putting grease fittings on those pivot points with no ill effects. In fact I have never had to replace a single bushing. I use amsoil water resistant grease but any grease meant for use in wet environment will work. Synthetic will hold up longer as it resists water degradation better.

st a simple small hole? Are you able to get a decent amount of grease in there?

I used to weld nuts and install zerks on all the pivot points. I completely agree with the suspension being more consistent when everything is lubed up.
Yep just a small hole, I hit them about every ride around home and take grease gun with me on Vaca and grease them if I can.
