Spline grease
Okay guys I've torn both wheels off to have new ones put on. I happen to check the splines and notice there wasn't much grease on them. Now the closest yamaha dealer to me is about 2 hours away.

What grease should I use for this?

I was told to use
Moly bdenum disulfide grease

How much moly. I've heard the concentration needs to be pretty high.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Honda Moly 60 paste works well.

No Help BUT did you take any pics so show others what it looked like and give us a idea? It would be great to see what to look for too. Just a thought. thanks!

@browncoat I was lucky and managed to find some at the local Honda dealer. I've been told that most of the dealerships do not keep it on hand. The alternative is that you can find it online, namely Ebay.

RE: Spline grease
Yeah its kind of odd all the dealerships and service dept. Don't keep this stuff around... I ended up having to order off of Amazon.

RE: Spline grease
Molly-B is something that "Old Time" mechanics know well, I have about 3 cans of it on my shelf in the garage, used it exclusively on the race car in the wheel bearings and when putting motors/gearboxes together! If you find any buy a small supply that way you will always have it on hand.

ONLY USE MOLY PASTE ..MOLY GREASE DOSNT CONTAIN ENOUGH MOLY. THATS WHY YOUR OEM GREASE DISAPEARED

RE: Spline grease
Good Thread..... I have heard that the Spline can cause issues so it's a good idea to grease it up. My plan will be to do that when I change the rear tire. I b ought my 650 used with only 5k on the bike I think I am good for now. Either way great thread. thumbs up.
