Proceeding to the right side we remove the gear cover revealing the primary and secondary gears. Again the photos should not need explanation except to stress that the amount of grease should not exceed the recommendation. Over lubricating here can eventually cause clutch slippage and burning odors.
Frequency of lube cycles is dependent on your riding style and miles/time. Riders who use their bikes daily to commute to work/school obviously will need to relubricate more often than the biker who rides a couple of times a week for short durations. You'll need to be the judge and check the parts identified to see how your last lube job is holding up and schedule your lubrication based on how things look.
The areas shown typically are lubricated from the factory but they need to be lubed with a good quality bearing grease prior to riding for the first time.
