Greg, the Honda Service Manual was not written for end users. Like all Helm manuals, they are written for OEM servicers. There are many basic items in all of these manuals that are left out. If your read the beginning of these manuals, it states that the procedures are intended for professional technicians.
If a professional tech needs to be told that the pivots need to be lubed, then there is something very wrong with his training.
FWIW, I remember reading somewhere in the factory manual where it shows lubrication points and the type of Honda grease to use for each point. It was not in the maintenance section.
It's in the General information section under "Lubrication and Seal Points."
