how to lube the rear swing arm joint

Ok, so the owner's manual says that the rear swing arm swivel point needs periodic lubrication. Where the hell do you lube it?? I've looked all over the bike, I don't see a zerk fitting or any other type of opening where axle grease could go. Bike is '05.

There is no zerk fitting for a grease gun.
You disassemble, grease parts, then reassemble.

The critical parts in there are the needle-type bearings, the collars that they roll around, the oil seals that cover them, and the bolts/pivot shafts that hold it all together.
Wow, so I should plan for a solid afternoon's work when doin that. Thanks!
