Have you got the owners manual for it?

The rear splines are VERY important to lubricate: How to lubricate the splines in your rear drive

The rear end gear oil needs to be changed too: How to replace the gear oil in your rear drive

Kickstand: How to lubricate your (side) kickstand

Center stand: How to lubricate your center stand

There's a grease fitting on the rear driveshaft to lubricate the drive shaft joint.

The wheel bearings typically don't need lubrication, and when they do go, it's wise to just replace them with sealed bearings that never need lubrication.

Throttle, clutch and choke cables need occasional lubrication.

That's all that's I'm coming up with off the top of my head.
