There is no way to lube the u-joint. You can spray lube on it, but it is not lubeing any thing inside the joint itself.

Note, I never done it on a VN, but if it was assembled, it can be disassembled...Im guessing its a pin type bearing and gets pressed in at the factory. It can therefore be pressed out...once thats done (dont lose the pins) can be greased from the inside. Almost willing to bet, a comparable U-joint could be found that has a tapped in fitting like modern cars do. Ir even tapped for a fitting.
Funny too, because I been thinking about that recently.

I havent taken a close look at it, but I believe that it is a sealed u-joint. I see them on the 18 wheelers on the steering shaft and on the drive shaft too.

this is one of those "if it ain't broke don't fix it things". If you must take it apart,go look at the kawasaki Praire 400 ATV rear diveshaft U-joint and see if yours measures the same,It is pretty close and Kaw sells it separately unlike the one for a bike driveshaft. I know it is a direct replacement for the 1500/1600 although they won't tell you that and they look to be the same size.
