Yes the side stand. Just did this myself.

Put bike on centerstand. Operate sidestand manually. Shoud operate freely and return to the up position with no effort once you give it a nudge.

With the sidestand up/stored, you will see a small hole facing out on the stationary portion of the stand bracket. This is the hole you lube. Pump new grease until you push out all the old dirty greese and new grease is coming out.

While there is no Zerk fitting, I uses an attachment on my greese gun that looks like a needle and used for greasing CV joints and flush mount fittings. You can pick one up and any bixbox autoparts store. It has a Zerk on the back that connects to your greese gun.

Amazing how much crap came out of mine. It is down low, gets lots of road grime and fluids splashed near and around.
