I open the fly wheel cover for a yahama SUV and see this. I think it is way over grease, but then again, the GP1200 have a grease hose attached to the flywheel cover and there is no way for us to see if it need grease or not. I think the previous owner just keep putting in more grease each season........ What is a good way to prevent this from happening? By the way can I use regular marine grease?
