Steering head grease fitting

For the life of me I cannot find the grease cert on my 11 rgu. I have downloaded the service manual and it has a picture of where its at. Cannot find any youtube videos, only a street glide. Being a frame mounted fairing, do rgu's have a grease fitting? Bought it used 2 weeks ago and I'm trying to do a little maintaince to it. Saw a video on greasing the front steering head and thought that it probably needed it since it has 30k on it. Can't find it. Help!

It's there. Keep looking. It also take a lot of grease if it hasn't been greased before.

Do I need to remove anything? Is it on the left side like the street glides?

Found it! It was behind wiring harness. Two of them. I'll try and grease it up tomorrow.
Thanks a lot guys. I was doubting whether I had one or not.
Thanks again

At least you found it on a diagram, but if you can't find it, maybe you have this going on. If there isn't a zerk fitting, check for a hole (where it's supposed to be). https://www.roadglide.org/28-troubles...ease-zerk.html

Not to hijack the thread, BUT, for the newer (Rushmore?) bikes, I couldn't find a zerk fitting in the parts catalog. According to my service manual under Inspect and Lubricate, it has to be disassembled, but the bearings aren't removed. Doing so damages them, and they have to be replaced.

Firewalker, at this point consider yourself lucky! lol

Edit: Good for ya, and you beat me to it, but I'll leave the post up for anyone else that might question it.
