I have a 2012 Redwood RW and I am trying to grease my suspension system but the zerk fitting will not take any grease. Do you have to take the weight off the suspension?

The offending zerk may need to be replaced.

It will be easier to grease with the weight off the suspension. If it won't take grease then, take the zerk out and see if you can squirt grease through it. If not, replace. If you can, you may have to use more pressure to get the grease in the fitting, or there could be something obstructing the grease in the suspension part which I would think would be checked out under warranty.

Thanks for the info. I took the weight off the suspension and was able to grease all the zerk fittings.
