There are various types of grease depending on the application.
Apply the right amount of grease to the right place. This is the basis of grease maintenance.
It is also known as urea grease.
It is probably the most frequently used basic grease and is useful for greasing up various places.
Its features are excellent water and heat resistance.
This grease is often used in moving parts such as bearings and bearings, which tend to rise in temperature due to friction.
It is also called multi-purpose grease.
Extremely high pressure grease.
This grease is suitable for places where there is high contact pressure between metals or where heavy load is applied to lubricate.
This grease is used to prevent galling and seizure.
Its weaknesses are that it is heat-sensitive, low in viscosity, and is easily washed away by water.
Keep in mind that the grease should be moderate.
It is not suitable for lubricating metal, but it has the property of not having an adverse effect on rubber and plastic parts.
In the case of motorcycles, it is suitable for lubricating the parts with rubber gaskets.
This is the grease that you can always use for overhauling the brake area.

If the clutch is heavy, clean & grease it up!
In general, the bigger the bike, the heavier the clutch tends to be, is it really just the clutch that's causing it?
Maybe it's the lever or clutch cable?
So, if you have any idea what you're doing, grease up your clutch cables!
This one isn't that difficult either.
Is the handle caught? Is something funny? Then grease up the stem bearing!
Like the lever, one of the easiest lubrication problems to experience is the stem bearing, which is responsible for smooth handlebar movement.
This is one of the areas you want to periodically grease up.
If you find that the handlebars are caught in some way, it's a warning sign. It's a danger sign if you see any symptoms of a sticking handlebar. Grease it up ASAP!
Grease up the bearings for a comfortable rotation
There are a few areas on the bike where bearings are used, and they're all very important to grease up!
When the rumbling starts, or rather, before it starts, the bearings should be greased!
If left unattended, the bearings might seize up and lock up....
You're forgetting something. Grease up the swing arm
There are so many situations where grease comes into play in the undercarriage!
Of those, the wheel and stem bearings are the ones most people care about, but don't forget to grease up the swing arm area!
Do it if you want to enjoy your car in perfect condition!
Grease also comes in handy when the brakes are squealing badly.
You don't want oil on your brakes. This is just common sense, but if your brakes are squeaking, you might want to grease them up. Maybe.

But by doing this kind of modest maintenance, you can find small abnormalities during the work.
There is a big difference between a bike that has been treated with such care and a bike that has not been treated with such care, and you can tell just by riding it.
Grease up is not just about applying grease.
It's basic maintenance, but there's more to it than that. It's basic maintenance, but there's more to it than that.
