Now, it is a five minute job to grease them.
Oh wait. I forgot which swingarms have closed off ends where the bearing seats are and some don't. Some swingarms you can just pump grease through the pins until it oozes out past the seals. Others are open on the inboard side of the bearing, so you can't grease them that way. Check yours before you pump your swingarm full of grease.
