Hi, just brought a 2nd hand yamaha 2009 model, took it out the other weekend a botany for a test run and grease seems to be coming out. Steering seemed a bit stiff as well by the end of the day. Anyone know why this happens. Im going to take it to a dealer but just wanted to see if anyone knows why its coming out before i take it.

HI, that is excess grease that has been pumped into the midsection via the grease nipples. No real seasl in there just bushings and thrust washers so wipe away the grease and do not put as much in the next time you grease her.
