the berings are sealed..but the axel is good to hit with grease

never use WD-40 to lubricate anything on a motorcycle...it attracts dirt and dust

use a white spray grease lube (in a can)

You definitely, definitely need to get some good grease (I like belray, available at any motorcycle shop) and you have to grease the steering bearings. Every one I have seen is almost dry.

Like Precision said, the swingarm bearings are rubber sealed and don't need to be greased. And definitely don't think wd40 is a lubricant. I do use it to drive out water from pivot points after I wash the bike, but I wipe it all off and grease anything that needs it.
