A toothbrush is a good method indeed and the typical grease guns are really just too big for our bikes anyway, but I thought I'd mention a handy-dandy lil dealie I use all the time for this kinda thing as it really helps keep everything clean including the grease itself, don't need to stick it in a bag or even clean it when yer done and talk about precision application lol;
It's nothing but an epoxy syringe, cheap & reusable;
