Best as I can tell that stuff should be fine to use on your splines.

Any grease/paste that has a moly content over 50% will work fine....did not see a moly content for it, but seen the stuff before and I know it's pretty high...

Ah, well that's lower than I thought it was. However.. you can use it...it's still going to be better than plain bearing grease. The Honda stuff would of course be "better"...

I recommend either Honda Moly 60, which is 60% moly, or Guard Dog 570, which is 73% moly. That stuff should work fine, but I don't think it will last as long as the stuff with a higher moly content. I use the 570 because it seems to last a long time. It has lasted as long as a rear tire, which seriously cuts down on maintenance time.

I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
