Reason my wheel flange wore out on my '86 was no grease. The PO used no grease at all. I bought a tube of molly 60, ten bucks at the local stealer.

Honda M-77 Assembly Paste part# 08798-9010 tube size 2.65oz /1.75g
contains Molybdenum disulfide (1317-33-5j ), Dimethyl, Phenylmethyl-polysiloxane,Trimethyl terminated (63148-52-7 ), 12-Hydroxy-lithium stearate (7620-77-1 )
No mention of the Moly content/ % . I just bought a tube . Its near 20$ at my local stealer and they kept it out back not in the display racks with oils ans coolants ect. My understanding is it is an assembly lube for gears,cams and such internal bits needing good lubricant till the oil flow begins.
Could it work on the splines ? I dunno . I'll keep using Honda PRo Moly 60 for that till its not available.

NASR 10 Good times!

Mike, back up a few posts, M-77 is Moly 60

that's why we dismantle the bike and install new bearings in a clean work environment, or we clean the bageezus out of any fitting
-such as the plastic speedo drive gear at the wheel hub, Getting 20 year old grease out of the threads and corners of housing, ugh!
reminder, or those new to the thread, MOLY 60 or newer Moly 77 spec is for use on rear wheel splines and driveshaft splines so they slip apart next time!

Wheel bearings use good quality- marine-waterproof synthetic wheel bearing grease. $5 a tub with enough to do 2 bikes and a car
Steering Stem bearings: Use that same grease as wheel bearings
Steering bearings are another common wear-out part, that contributes to our infamous low and high speed tank slapping death wobble

Save your small tube of Moly 60 / 77 for the rear wheel splines and driveshaft, where it will be a lifesaver next time you work on that part of the bike!
