Moly is a dry lubricant that is in a grease base for application purposes.

The Honda Moly 60 is 60% moly to 40% grease.

In high pressure situations such as the drive gear splines, the grease gets squeezed out and a dry layer of moly remains behind to continue lubricating.

This is why you don't want to just use any grease to lube your splines. The grease would get forced out and there wouldn't be any lubrication at all.

Moly is expensive stuff, so most moly greases (the cheap ones) are in the range of only 4-10%.

If you use a low percentage moly, when the grease gets squeezed out you have less remaining moly protection.

The good stuff is worth the money.
