I wouldn't substitute with the Moly EP or the assembly Lube... very low percentage of Moly... CV grease has a somewhat higher moly content, but wouldn't substitute that either... "Moly" should be in the 50% or higher contentto be called a substitute..

Example below of Moly EP Grease...

I was at the shop that I have install my tires, just mounting the tire on the rim, he does an exceptional job on the tire mounting, but I won't let him do any other work on my bike. He never heard of Moly 60. They had to look it up, call their supplier to see if they could get it. Then didn't seem like he wanted to order it and tried to talk me out of it........ Like he did the dyna beads......

Thats why I figured if Im going to own this bike, I need to learn to work on it. Not that Im going to do everything right, but at least when I make a mistake, it didn't cost me $100 and hour to get it done wrong, nor will it cost me $100 and hour to fix it..........

I spend more time educating my guy than he does mounting my tires...

here's the problem:
before the recession, there were so many motorcycle dealers, you could throw a rock in any direction and hit one, (well sort of) ,after the recession, they all closed up and now the closet Honda dealer is two hour drive away. eaiser to order on-line.

If you have a Honda car dealer close by they use and sell the same Moly paste as the motorcycle dealers. Of course my local car dealer is more of a stealer than the bike dealer.:shock:

I went with the Loctite 51048 65%, 8oz can with a brush in the lid so no mess application.

I will only use the Honda 60 moly paste. Just coat splines like you are painting them. A little bit goes a long ways. I have been working on a tube of Honda 6o Moly paste for at least 10 years now without a spline failure. Famous last words of most motorcycle mechanics are, "I have something here just as good."

I found it in my local shop here in Hawaii, so I grabed a tube as the other one is half gone. Damn this stuff is like liquid gold by what they charge for it. But was shocked to see it on the shelf. Savannah, GA Dealer didn't know what I was talking about

I just left the Honda dealer in Modesto, California and they told me the moly 60 lube is no longer available and they do not have a replacement at this time. So you are on your own to get this lube.

I had to replace the spline on my '86 recently. The local dealer had the Molly 60 in a tube. It was around ten dollars. It was my first time doing the rear wheel on a Goldwing. After I got the stuff I could see why the book says to use it.

Moly 60 has been replaced at Honda by Moly 77 assembly PASTE, but I would go aftermarket and get the GREASE not paste = for our specific uses
there is a difference, dont have the article in hand today (it was on actual paper!!!)
Will give my buddy a shout

(shouting at computer) HEY You Know Who!! I see you looking in this window!!
did you figure out what that meant on where to use-- and not use-- the Moly 77 PASTE?
something about the end cup of driveshaft??
Anyone see that article?

We used an old half-full tube of moly60 for the rear wheel splines and related parts, with plenty left for another bikes use!

If you doubt how well this stuff sticks to the spline parts, wait till you have to get in and
spray- dig- wipe- spray dig wipe it all out of there, in a tight space of the hub
Repeat several times till clean...then put new Moly on!!!!

TIP: Use latex gloves- you know how spark plug anti-seize is the worst thing to get off your fingers?
Move over! Old Moly is here~
That gets on your clothes- forget the shirt-toss it, On your hands- plan on lots of Orange Goop and scrubbing~
Removal of a few layers of human skin for a pita job well done!!,,you didn't need all those layers anyway.
