How many grease fittings on 2012 Sportsman 500?

Purchased a new 2012 Sportsman 500 back in the spring and wanted to know how many grease fittings there are.

I found 6 in the rear, 2 in the front and 1 on the drive shaft. Am I missing any others?

Thanks
Eric

I have 2 on each of the upper control arm and 1 on each of the lower control arm. That equals 6 in the rear. I have a '12 sporty 500 ho.
