None. The splines on the driveshaft, U-joint and driven flange on the rear wheel should be lubed once every few years with Moly Paste that has 60% or better molybdenum content. Honda Moly 60 is one product, Loctite also markets 65% moly paste. Don't use molybdenum grease from auto parts stores because they normally have only around 5% moly. Moly Paste has the property of embedding in the surface metal pores and provides protection from friction even when the visible compound is gone. Normal grease will eventually be flung from the splines and cause accelerated wear. The last Goldwing that had a zerk fitting was either the '79 or '80 (I have CRS, can't remember which). In the '80s Honda changed the requirement for lubing the splines to Moly Paste which eliminated earlier problems with spline wear.

It was the 1976 - 1979 GL1000's that had the grease fitting on the drive shaft housing. It was not on the first year 1975 GL1000's.
