    Help with zerk injection

    So the zerk grease injection port is new to me. I have the needle injector to apply but can anyone provide a quick step by step instruction. I must have done something incorrect because ever since I injected the grease I have a horrible squeak that I cannot locate. I pulled everything so I am back the problem being the pivot area.

    I went through the list as far as normal squeak spots; pedals, BB, cranks, seat post, saddle, loose bolts, and nothing. The squeak can be heard while either in saddle or off, off pedals or on. It is really bad while under load. I can make the squeak by rocking the bike side to side while rolling. Thanks

    Just pulled the rocker arms off and shock again. Cleaned all bolts and used some Super Coat grease on all areas. Creaking is gone.

    I used to get a mystery creak out of my El Capitan that drove me crazy. I looked, cleaned and lubed EVERYTHING (I thought)! Turned out it was the replaceable derailleur hanger. It gets a bit dusty between the chainstay interface and would creak. Cleaned it lubed it and never had a mystery creak again!
