Drain rear end for spline lube?

Do you need to drain the fluid? It would seem odd if you have to lube something if it was immersed in the gear lube.

yea, once you read thru that thread, you will see that the splines are not bathed in oil.

also, a very light coat of moly should go on the ring of splines that engages the rear wheel. too much here, and it will come out during riding, and generally make a mess of the rear wheel

Just make sure when you take the final drive off the bike you don't lay it on its side or it will start to drain itself. Keep it upright just like it is on the bike.
