I grease it about every 2 months.
Or after I wash it or go thru water over the "greaseable" parts on a ride. Whichever comes first.

10 minutes???? Not on an 850XP Touring, more like an hour. You have to take the wheels off got to be able to get to the fittings and then have child like hands in order to get the grease gun to seat properly. I would say that out of the 18 fittings there are 4 that are easy to get to with the wheels off. The others are a pain in the butt - especially the upper fittings up front.
