I have a 93 K75RT. I have a Grease fitting on the side stand - nice easy to grease then. Onvthe center stand there is only a little hole. Os this normal ør has the PO changed the center stand?
As the center stand is not retracting properly i though that i would put a Grease fitting in there. Can this be done without remowing the center stand mount?

Seems like my center stand was born without grease fittings. Ihave no knowledge about mounting grease fittings but i guess that i have to cut a thread in the grease hole and screw in the fitting. Is this the way to do it?

Yes, but check that the grease nipples don't protrude past the inner size of the metal they are screwed into. Carefully file shorter and clean filings out thoroughly if they do.
