I have the 03 model and love it. The motor has to be the best 250cc two stroke ever produced. Anyway, the rear linkage is easy to tear down and re grease. Just be sure to work over a towel or a container when removing the needle bearings from the linkage or they will end up lost. Also, I believe you will need to keep an eye out for c-clip retainers. Use a flat head screw driver to remove them. Last but not least, use only a WATERPROOF grease when lubing your linkage. There is not much worse than trying to break free frozen bearings because someone did not use waterproof grease.
I hope this helps.
