Bushing, Wheel Bearings, Greasing...recommondations

Hey all. I have a 2010 Teryx. I've never replaced the bushings. I plan on getting Garage Products and doing them all here soon.

I don't believe I've ever replaced a wheel wearing. I've replaced one cv joint over 6000 KMS and a few seals.

I used to replace wheel bearings every so often on my Yamaha Kodiak, but I don't take my Teryx to the shop much to see if it has any issues. I change the oil, clean the filter and drive.

I've never "greased any nipples", like on my Kodiak either, never looked to be honest? Not sure if it has any or not.

I've never replaced the spark plugs either, that I can remember anyway.

Basically, what do you think I should be doing for maintenance on my Teryx?

My baby still runs strong, well over 6000 kms on it. I have a VFJ clutch (same belt for 4000kms), Muzzy's, MSD....

John at GP recommended a synthetic grease. He mentioned green grease. I was able to pick a tube up at napa.

Man that's impressive! I clean my filter every 10 hours and my engine only lasted 1500 miles or so.

Get the wheel off the ground. Check for play side to side. A lil play top to bottom,if u can see the bushings move,and very lil or no play side to side is bushings.sloppy all over is bearings. If they get bad enough u can see the wheel leaning before u even jack it up
