There is a thread on the ST1300 Forum as to what lube should be used on the rear wheel & differential splines, 60% moly paste or Honda M-77 ( 20 % moly ) grease. Apparently the 60 % moly paste isn't available anymore.

Someone was wondering what Honda recommends for the splines on the CTX1300.

So, does anyone here have a genuine Honda CTX1300 Service manual that can answer the question ??

Thank you, if you can enlighten us.

I opened my manual to the final drive section when I picked it up.....what luck. The manual states to pack 2 grams (.08oz.) of molybdenum grease into pinion joint spline.
It also states use molybdenum disulfide paste (containing more than 40% molybdenum disulfide, NLGI #2 or equivalent).
Example:
Molykote G-n paste manufactured by Dow Corning USA
Honda moly 60 ( USA only)
Rocol ASP UK
Rocol Paste manufactured by Sumico lubricant, Japan
I hope this helps

Thanks, Gary. That's exactly the answer I was hoping for.

Are those examples listed in the manual ??

According to the spec sheet for M-77, its 77% moly. (Hence the name). Its what I use on all my shaft drives. No problem. The specified uses however does not mention spline usage. Interesting....

Here is a more readily available and cheaper alternative to moly 60 and the recommended replacements.
Loctite LB8012 Metal Free Low Friction Lubricant.
It is 65% moly, we used it for spline drives at the dealership I worked at. never had issues with it.
Most NAPA stores keep it in stock.
