Two weeks ago, with the help of AZ Vulcan, I (first time) performed a Spline Lube on my 750 using Guard Dog 73% Moly. My Ooop's & Duh is : I did not pull the large Snap Ring from Final Drive, remove/clean off damper, clean lube large Spline, replace O'Ring prior to re-assy. A f/u on my part....
Q: How important should I consider it to be
for correcting my unintentional ignorance (pulling rear wheel off again) ?
Front and (exposed / outer) rear splines were
thanks in Advance
We ALL missed this part of the spline lube until wib (re)discovered it a year or two back and added it to fergy's spline lube writeup. He discovered a dirty mess in there to be cleaned up, but nothing broken or destroyed.
You went over and above our usually recommended Honda Moly 60(%) in using the significantly more expensive Guard Dog 73% moly to lube the splines.
Will you have peace of mind for the next 10k miles, or until the rear tire needs to be replaced, if you don't spend a couple of hours now to pull the rear wheel to check, clean and relube the wheel splines and damper?
I suggest you check, clean and relube the rear brake components on the other side of the rear wheel hub too, whenever it next serviced.
If wondering about your's and your bike's health is going to negatively affect your enjoyment of riding because of this oversight, I say take the time to pull the wheel, then check, clean and relube now. JMHO.
