I have a Gen1 2025R also. I cut an access hole in my cowling by the pedals. I was careful to make sure there were no electric wires behind were I was cutting . This lets me unbolt the metal panel to get to the U-joint. Then I purchased a 180 deg swivel grease coupler and ground a little bit off of the back of the coupler while at the desired angle. This grinding of the back helped greatly to reach and lock onto the u-joint fitting. For me it was worth the effort to do all of the above. Greasing once a season is easy for me now, before it was a pain in the a**. My 3D printed plastic cover was done before I retired and had access to a 3D printer.

MTB98 - I did not take the CAD data with me when I retired. I will contact a former coworker to see if theres a chance the CAD data is still in their system. I will contact you if it is.

Cool what size hole is that and what did you use to cover it

The cutout is approximately 3” x 6” and I made the plastic cover at work with a 3D plastic printer before I retired. If I were making a cover today, post retirement, I would cut a piece of 1/8” flat plastic stock to the profile and use #6 sheets metal screws to screw on.

Bobs2025R- I’m glad you got your needle tip grease gun attachment to work for you. I tried using the same and I thought the u-joint was taking grease but after looking at the joint closely I realized that the needle tip was just making a mess and not getting into the joint. When I switched to the 180 deg. swivel grease coupler with the locking jaws on it I could hear and visually see the grease getting were it needed to go.
