Can anyone confirm what the thread size is on the grease nipples on the rear suspension of a mark V. Specifically the grease nipple which goes into the end of the bolt that is used to hold the link arm to the swing arm ?



Hi Steve,
              They should be 1/4"BSF - a straight nipple for the bottom bolt on the suspension link, and an angled one for the top bolt. Originally, the top one had a loose lock nut - if this type is not available, you may have to fit an ordinary angled nipple and then turn the whole bolt until you can get the grease gun on it.



Thanks Eddie.
