A little help please?
« on: February 19, 2021, 06:10:55 PM »
Hey all,

I am getting new tyres on the 1100 tomorrow and have been told this is a good time to inspect the final drive and add new Moly Paste. I have the paste so was going to do this while they have the back wheel off. However, I have no idea what I need to do. Do I need to pull anything off to get to it once the wheel is off? I cannot find any videos of pictures showing this so would really appreciate someone pointing me in the right direction so I don't miss this opportunity.

the moly has to be applied to the final drive spline, most places use marine grease which is a waste of time, first you need to inspect the drive for wear

So at what age does this "old enough to know better" kick in?
I believe in the "hereafter", every time I go to the shed I have to think "what am I here after"

Tell the tyre place that you want the final drive grease with you moly paste, and they will do it I am sure. (Tyre for bikes in Vic Park  WA do it as a matter of course, axs they know what they are doing). It doesnt take much paste, as its just a smear required. If you ask , I am sure they will show you where it goes.

Have a look here, a couple of posts down are pics of the area.
