A couple of weeks ago I bout myself a good waterproof grease i found. While I was doing my skidplates i saw that the drive shaft has a zert and calls for a different type of grease.

My question is does it really matter or can i use the same type of grease without any problems or doing any harm. thanks

Who makes this new green grease? Is it green because environmentally friendly? Do you use this on all the zerts even on the driveshaft ujoint?

+2....Been using it for a few years...stuff stays put well and is very water resistant..hard to even pressure wash it off when it gets on something. Get some on your hands and try washing it off...even using dawn it leaves a little residue...lol

BTW around here most auto parts stores sell it..Auto Zone ect..

Ok so can you mix the Green Grease with the existing grease ??? Say you just want to grease your zerks, can you just add the Green ??? Or ???

Yes, you can mix any of these greases with any other that may be in the joint at this time. It's not aircraft, and no grease in the wheel bearings, so NLGI 2 is the perfect fit for our RZR's. All of these parts flex at very slow rates, so to speak. If I am correct, when you grease the rear joint on the driveshaft, it is really only the spline area, and not the u-joint itself. Any type of grease is better than no grease at all. I shoot my machine once a week, as the wife runs through water on a very regular basis.

Thanks for all the replies. I picked up a tube of the green grease this evening.
