Newer model VN 900 do not have grease nipple or zerks on the rocker arm. The two service manuals i have indicate using the zerks to grease the rocker arm.

How do you grease the rocker arm without zerks? Are they permanently lubricated in newer models?

The manual says inspect & re-grease every 24,000 km. Check smooth operation by bouncing on the seat (compressing the rear suspension) 5-6 times, and check for smooth silent operation. Tough to do.

Newer models require removal to re-grease those bearings.
