Having read many posts about the factory not lubing the splines properly raises a question in my mind. I just wonder how many owners of a new VN-750 actually had the splines lubed at the 6000 mile scheduled interval? And how many actually lubed them every 12,000 miles after that? My 2002 VN-750had close to 10,000 miles on it when I got it, and the previous owner stated that he had never had the splines lubed. Dummy me, a few months back I thought that the shaft drive would be relatively maintenance free like shaft drive on a car?
