Default How do you grease this fitting on a Yamaha 115

The hydralic steering cylinder moves as the motor trims up so the cylinder always blocks you from getting a grease gun on this fitting. Thought about installing a 90 degree fitting but don't think you could screw it in as the motor mount would prevent it from screwing in.

Use a grease gun that has this flex hose:

Odds are this will fit. Just replaced one on my Honda 250 and it was M6.

My 225 has the SAME issue. I changed to a 90 degree as shown above and it WAS an M6. EDIT: I did have to use a shim washer to get it tight and in the proper position....

I ordered the Lock N lube 90 degree grease coupler and will try that. Turning the motor does not allow you to get to the fitting. There is only 3/4 inch between the zerk and the steering cylinder.
