What do fellow speedplay owners use to inject grease into the pin hole size injection port on the side?
Is the Pedro's grease/gun a good way to go here?
Suggestions?

Approximately how often should this be done? I've never done mine and I'm thinking they might be overdue.

I would lube my pedals any time they spun smooth without ressistance.I think speedplay recomends doing it every 3000 miles.
Mine had a screw on the side (X3) This was loosened and the injection port was exposed.I have worked on some bikes with X2 pedals.If I can recal correctly I think I popped of a plug on the side to sadly find no injection port.The pedal was then just packed with grease like any other bearing system that did not a have a injection port.

My X2's have the same system you described. Remove a screw to expose an injection port. Very simple.

I ordered a grease gun from Speedplay and asked the rep how often to grease. He said that he does his every 3 to 4 months, but he did not say how many miles that was.

My X1s have the plug on the side but came with a lube fitting that you are supposed to tap into the recess where the plug was. It will accept the conical grease injector. I have had my X1s for 4 years and just lube them every spring.

Older ones needed a plastic plug and simple grease gun and newer ones have a small screw and grease gun. Pedros or Finish Line gun is what I use. Speedplay recommends CRC boat trailer grease



though I've just pumped finish line grease through as needed like when the pedal turns too freely.
