    I squish the end of the red straw that comes with the can into a thin, flat tip.
    I then practice on a piece of newspaper to get a feel for the spray button and then squirt a teeny bit of grease in 3 to 5 different places around the clutch hub, rolling the bike forward to rotate the clutch hub in between squirts. It is a learned technique as applying too much grease will result in the grease flinging outwards when the clutch is spinning and contaminate the friction pads. It really does not take much grease at all, just frequent applications.

    I did the test to see if my crankshaft was turning when I rolled it and it does spin but it's fully silent and doesn't try and turn over the motor. Does anyone know what my problem is
