Grease fittings?

Enforce I crawl under the Scamp, I was wondering if the axel and or bearings have any grease fittings? You know , a nipple where one can pump in new grease. Thanks in advance.

if the bearing caps are solid there is no grease fittings, if the caps have a rubber disc in the face of them they usually have grease fittings, just pry out the rubber discs with a screw driver push your grease gun on and pump away while rotating the wheel

If you have grease zerks under the rubber caps you can grease the bearings. If you pump to much grease in the grease will come out the back of the seal and get on the brakes.
Good luck.
