Adding grease zerks

One of the few complaints I have about Honda is everything is "sealed" so there's no way to grease things without disassembly.

So, where all have yall added grease zerks to keep things lubricated?

I've drilled holes in my upper A-arms on my 500's, added a zerk so I could put a shot of grease in there every so often. (will try to take and add pics of this soon)

I've added a grease zerk to the rear brake cam like this

I know some guys drill a hole in the top of the rear axle tube out by the hub and fill the tube with grease to keep water out of the diff.

Some even drill holes in the knuckle, and then cut a slot in the outer bearing race, which they line up with the hole, so they can add a zerk to their knuckle and grease wheel bearings often.

When I was working on a Rubicon a couple of weeks ago the rear foot brake was locked up, so I took it off, cleaned it up, and added a zerk. Now it can easily be greased if it starts getting sticky. (pictured)

Anyone have any other ideas, or pics of what they've done?

Nope, just drilled a hole and used a tap. I wasn't sure if the metal was thick enough but turned out it was.
