Lubing the lower rear shock needle bearings

Just finishing up the 18k service on my 07 k1200 gt (now with 96K). Thought it would be a good time to lube the lower rear shock needle bearings. I didn't find the exact thing on the reprom disk. Whats there is replacing the rear spring strut. Preparatory work involves removing a lot of parts???

I think if I have the bike supported on the frame at the location of the center-stand bearings, a jack on the swing arm, rear tire removed, I should be good to go.

Am I missing something?
Cheers, Chris
