On my 95 1500 after removing the rear wheel I discover that the previous owner(s) did not lube the splines. They are worn way beyond use. I am lucky I didn't get stranded. Are the spline in the drive an integral part of the drive gear or separate similar like the coupling to the wheel?

Yeah, that is what I said (only more descriptive) when I saw it. Thanks for the info.

My BMW oil head did that to the splines on the clutch and input shaft. About the same condition except they were lubed.

Now i have to pull the rear wheel of my 99 1500 and see for my self.

eBay listings



this is a 2000 year model, and is a bit tougher than what you had, designed for the Valkrie



this one has the driveshaft and rear end



lots more there, use this search link to find them all.

Which ever way you go,there are 3 o rings in there that you SHOULD replace,they may be bad in the wheel and caused the lube to get thrown out.
i replace mine EVERYTIME the tire is replaced,cheap insurance.

A good percentage of the time you can find all the parts needed on Ebay to take care of the problem. A replacement Final Drive from a trike take off should not set you back much and the driven flange should be available as well. You can most likely get the drive and driven flange for less than the price of a new driven flange.

Those splines haven't seen greased since new. (The lash had to cause a foot vibration when letting off the throttle?)

It's good practice to clean and re-grease the Drive/wheel hub splines at every tire change. (Brake dust & road dirt is the enemy of moly paste)

Pull the drive and clean the both ends of the drive shaft & u-joint every two years, and you'll never need to replace those related parts.

Agree! Always make sure the three o-rings are in place and in good shape. I used 'red' grease on my splines every tire change and 130k miles later they showed zero wear. If the gal hadn't rear-ended me and totaled the bike I'd still be riding it and doing the same thing.

Sorry you are a little late.

I recently "gave away" a 1998 Final Drive Unit with very low mileage.
