Grease your U-joint (both fittings) every other oil change. Or you'll replace it soon.

Defrential Greasing

This is all I could find out from the Champion Folks:

2006 CHAMPION TRIKE KIT


MODEL NUMBER: 705026 (My Model No.)
PHONE: 1-714-847-0948
Bolt behind the universal = Toyota
Screw in = Suzuki

Whatever that means. I also would like to know for sure what I have. Would make getting parts a dab easier. Would also like to carry a spare U-Joint. Can never tell when you may need one.

If anyone can help, please post a reply or PM. Thanks

We have a 2010 Champion with olny about 3300 miles on her. Is it now time for a greasing or can I wait a while longer? She is about due for an oile change I guess so I will proably do it then. What kind of differential is in the 2010 model?

Thanks for replies.

FWIW to anyone, DFT says grease the u-joints and the bottom suspension bearings every oil change. And replace the differential oil at 25,000 miles.

01 WINGER: I am not up on a lot of the abbreviations used on these posts, so at the risk of showing my bonafide ignorance, what does "irs" mean?
