Why doesn't polaris put grease zerks in their ball joints? Does anybody? Even after market?

I agree there should be a zerk on them..what I do is use a grease needle and lift the rubber and fill it....my buddy took a zerk and expoxied to a meat injector needle..bigger opening..worked great...just cover the outlet hole on zerk....

I have an '04 700 and an '08 500 and they seem to have zerks in different locations which makes no sense to me. I tried to grease everything I could find. The 700 has zerks in the ball joint housing, but the newer 500 doesn't. Makes no sense to me. If you were careful, you could probably drill and tap holes in certain spots and add zerks.

I added them. the original ball joints were caked with mud at 900 miles. def don't understand why the zerks aren't there from the get go.
