Default suzuki 300 grease fittings

I have a pair of 2016 df300 ap and cant find all of the grease fittings. I know of three- two on steering arm and one on driveshaft. Can you show me with pictures where the rest are? Thanks!

I have the same motor and the same question. I know of those 3 as well. How many do you believe there are?

Does anyone have a service manual from 2016 that has pictures of location?

I found four grease nipples on my 2014 300. Two on steering cylinder one by tilt support bracket port side and one on mid section starboard side I believe. Had same question about any more.

Can someone please confirm that the Zerk fittings are metric?
I need to replace the two fittings on the front of the clamp bracket/pivot tube with 90 degree fittings. They are not reachable with the steering ram in the way.

I did my 600 hour service last weekend. These are the 3 fittings I know and grease on my 2016 DF300, first picture are the 2 up top and the 2nd picture is the one in the mid-section. Also, my dealer told me my motor should have the infamous fitting added at the top of the LU shaft that is supposed to be so hard to find. 100% mine does not have it (3rd picture is where it should be). I know where it is seeing on friend's motors. My LU fell right out so no issues (drop and grease yearly).

Sure would love to know of any other grease fitting for this particular motor. Has to be more than 3.

I find if I tilt the motor up a little and turn the wheel to one side or the other, the fittings are easy to reach.

This is correct - you can turn/tilt to get at the fittings but having a pair of 90 degree fittings would make it really easy.
