Turn the bars all the way to the right, then look at the left side of the steering neck. You should see a zerk fitting there. Pump it full of viscous grease (Harley calls for their specialty grease) until it comes out of the top and bottom bearings. Be prepared to pump in a lot. Many folks have found the cavity ungreased, even after their first service which calls for greasing to these bearings.
Cheers
Ian

The best thing i have found is to use an air powered grease gun (sears $50.00).stuff rags or paper towels on the bottom side and pump till it comes out on top.
