Great info

I ran into this site while setting at home and recovering from surgery. Amazing what you can find when bored. Some great info for both new and old riders, of particular interest is the info on final drive lubes. Seems our bikes are only part of a large breed that the dealers either don't know or don't care to maintain correctly.

If you only go by what the web site shows, you will end up with a useless final drive. The discussion about lubricants is very good – this is where most have found out about the crytox stuff. The drive splines talked about on our web site can only be accessed by removing the final drive. For the VN750, there are really 2 sets of splines that NEED the molly 60, the one shown by the other web site and the ones on the drive shaft itself. See fergy’s procedure:

http://pages.tstar.net/~fergy/vulcan.html

The web site just points out how BAD some dealer service is. They don’t lubricate where they should and even if they do, they usually don’t use the proper lubricant.

I was not pointing to this web site as a final authority only additional information. I didn't mean to imply this as a replacement site. Lots of other good info here but as with all info including this site a reality check has to be performed on the info gathered. I beleive the goal of this web site is to assist people in being a more informed rider
