Loctite Moly Paste # 51048 works good,has more moly than the Honda Moly 60 and is more of a paste than the Moly 60,appears to stay glued to splines better,but the cost is alot higher than the moly 60,it is available thru most auto parts stores,just ask most can get it next day or two

Up here auto parts stores only carry Permatex products not Loctite.
Although Permatex is a subsidiary of Loctite it doesn't have the moly paste.

Using the dealer locator I found one industrial supply house that does carry Loctite products.

Advise given here is free and comes with no warranty "Caveat emptor"

The loctite has 5% more moly. It isn't stocked in virtually any parts stores. It's not any cheaper than Honda 60 by the ounce so why wait a few days when you can get the 60 at any Honda shop and it is what the manufacturer specifiies?

Just because I am a trouble maker per my coworkers, I will post this link:

https://goldwingfacts.com/forums/forum1/133768.html

A little long-ish, but read through.

IN MY EXPERIENCE if it is done more frequently than recommended (I do it annually regardless) this might be an option. For some guys who ride a LOT more per year and do not want to remove the rear wheel more often it might not be. Or it might work great for longer spans between servicings. Of course, I do not plan to test that.

You'd be surprised the Honda dealers that do not know what Honda Moly 60 paste is!
I had to explain it to my local Honda parts man and then he had to order it and I waited several days to get it.

Chromo. I was worried about that when I went to a Honda dealer. I didn't go to the dealer that is about a mile from my house wouldn't buy a valve stem cap from them. I went to a dealer about 15 miles away. As soon as I asked for the paste, the parts counter person stepped from behind the counter and took me right to the area where it was hanging on the rack. He said he makes sure it is always in stock in the showroom area for "do it yourselfers". This is a dealer I would go back to. Everybody was very nice and very helpful. They took the wheel I brought right in and put the new stem on while I waited and in 15 minutes I was out of there with my paste. Good experience.
