Austone update, red grease on GL1500 splines update
With around 8600 miles on the Austone, here is an update:
The pics show tread wear (I think there is some anyway). Also is a pic of where I ran the zip-tie for fender clearance. Turns out I have a small rub hole in the other side, so I plan to run a zip-tie on that side, too. Hole is not bad so no biggie.
Also pictured (maybe in a reply due to pic size. Who knows yet) are pictures of the driven flange. Bike has 97.6k on it and all I have used since 15k is red grease, greased annually. I also showed a pic of the grease I use. I am NOT saying y'all should not buy Honda moly grease! I am simply showing the results of my decision to use this lube. No visible spline wear.
OK. Having problems getting the pics here. It says jpg files can be up to 2.86 file size, and my largest is 2.64. Grr.. Got it figured out- I have to dowload one-at-a-time.
Pics are B&W infrared, but I lowered pic quality a bit due to file sizes.
