All you can really do is grease the top and bottom bushes, other than that its take it apart and rebuild it but i wouldnt recommend doing that unless you know exactly what your doing....

Might be worth looking at the linkage to see if that needs some grease.

Take the whole swing arm off and grease everything. The world will be a better place if you do.

Grease the bushing for the shock mounts real good as these will give a annoying squeek at times. Also grease all the swingarm and suspension bearings as noted earlier. This will really improve the ride....

If you want to service your shock and you're not quite comfortable with it you can check out the Shock Maintenance DVD from Motopower. I personally think it is easier to do the shock than the forks.
