Linkage Maintenance

I have seen several threads recommending frequent greasing of the needle bearings in the shock linkage and swing arm. My question is: how often should this be performed and do you recommend replacing the dust seals?

The manual says to replace dust seals when the sleeves are pulled. How often to lube?? That may depend on how wet your getting versus dry dust. Now that mine has failed, I will probable do it every 6th ride. I ran mine to failure which took about 1 year 3 months. I ride in alot of mud and very dry stuff. I would also pull the swing arm since the same bearings are there as well. I would think every 3 months should be good enough.
