Is Moly77 as good as Moly60?

Well after a whole day of driving around I have not found ONE SHOP that has Moly 60 grease so I can do my splines.

I did however find a local Honda/Yamaha Dealer that carries a Moly77 grease, is that just as good or better than the 60 I hear so much about on here thats a necessity for my spline maintenance? Please a little insight before I drive over a hour to pick it up tomorrow :P

I was doing some research online and it seems that Honda has replaced the M60 with M77. All the searches Ive done on the M60 comes up with the other including Amazon, EBay and local's. Can I get a confirmation cause I dont want to get it and have to tear my splines again in 3 months.

It's higher concentration of moly, so it's better.

Honda M-77 Assembly Paste (their brand of moly lube) is on my splines right now. Good stuff.

yea, the M-77 is the "new and improved" formula. It has a higher percentage of moly in it. So it should be better. When I did my splines I couldn't find the M-60 stuff either. I ended up using the Loctite Moly Paste that has a really high moly percentage as well.

Well, come on...she had four kids, gained weight, and thus lost some of her original enthusiasm. Of course it wouldn't be the same. But wait a few years and I bet her daughter will take it where she left off...
