You wonít regret it,the one that usually get it is difficult to find,mine was gone and I donít know when it went missing.its in the spline hub on the inside.the area that fits over the area in your second picture.

I put the Dunlop e4 on it and rode it about 40 miles of country backroads. The tire feels great and is smooth as glass. I have an e4 on the front with about 8,000 miles on it and it looks new. So now there a matched set. I took the wheel to a dealer and he installed it and balanced the tire for $250.00. So I have close to $500.00 in the 2 tire's. They should last a couple years. Good to go for now.

I just changed mine but stayed away from the e4, I liked the pattern on the Avon better.

Jerry Burns. Yikes!!! $250 just to mount and balance your rear a tire? Was the tire on the bike? Next time. Shop around. If you just took the wheel and tire to them. You got robbed. Should have been like $50. Although... 1 hour base rate for a bike mechanic is usually $80 per hour

that's the wrong grease. You need to use Molly paste. (now Honda M-77 paste) Not Bearing grease

This thread is a year old Ben2112. The $250.00 included the tire, the dismount of the old tire and the mounting of the New tire and balancing the wheel. I used Molly paste for the splines and the hub. The Dunlop e4 has about 9,000 miles on it now and is wearing good and handles well.

Oh sorry Jerry. I didn't notice that. Well now it makes sence, and totally worth it. I Just got back from the Honda shop getting the Honda Hypoid gear oil, Did you molly the pins on the flange? I just am putting mine back together. But this morning,started reading the threat on the front shaft spines. I did pull it out and mollied the front splines but then I read about the 2 holes. So now I'm going to take the final drive off again and make sure I didn't cover the weep holes with molly. and clean them either way. That new M-77 paste looks and feels totally different from the original. Feels like graphite.

that is what it is.... the grit lubricates the stuff, the grease is the carrier and gets squeezed out leaving the dry film lubricant to lubricate. i read that somewhere abt the moly paste. im not a purist... but mine is old so it just wants SOMETHING on the cleaned splines that PO didnt do much of anything to it, i dont think?. the article i read said that is why splines get worn down, ppl using grease on splines??? i just hv a hard time spending $16 on a little tube of that stuff. yes im that cheap... and YUK what a mess
