Default Zerk Fitting

I noticed the zerk fitting in the tailwheel yoke. Have you found that greasing the yoke through the fitting is sufficient most of the time or do you have to disassemble it?

[ed. I usually disassemble it and grease it while it's all apart. To tell you the truth of never even tried to use that fitting. dr]

I really like this airplane. dr
