As long as I don't do any long high speed riding in the rain it lasts a long time.
I have never been able to get it greased good using grease gun. I take the side stand off and clean it good then grease it liberally with a moly grease during reassembly.
Eventually it needs it again, but usually it lasts over 6 months.
