I changed the rear tire on my 1100 recently.

The final drive assemblywas packed with grease.

It hasa fitting attached.

The only other gear I could see is the one at the end of the assembly that goes into the swing arm. This one was loaded with grease as well.

I keep reading here of bikes with dry splines in 10K miles and less.

Mine had the Elite II's on it. They looked VERY old. I wouldn't doubt if they were the original tires that came on the bike.

Is this possible?

Or am I missing a lube point somewhere?

It sounds like you've found all the grease points.

Hi Jim,

Original equipment Dunnies were Qualifiers.

I believe some came with Bridgestone Mag Mopus as well.

Elite 2 didn't come out until '92 or so. Tiremanufacture datesare on the sidewall. Some one here can tell you how to read them. I can't remember. Hell, I can't remember what I was just talking about. :?:gunhead:

The splines should be lubricated ONLY with 60% Moly Paste. Honda has the stuff in small tubes, Honda Moly 60. Loctite also sells moly paste. It's very important that you use Moly Paste with 60% molybdenum content or better. Grease sold in grease gun tubes at auto parts stores as moly grease normally only has 5% or less moly. Moly paste is expensive but worth it if you want the splines to last.

No, the wheel has to be removed and the final drive separated from the wheel to get to them.
Thanks Dan, was afraid of that. :)
