Me again,

I've read all over here that i need to use Moly grease on my splines. But is Moly grease the same as LM grease?

I have seem LM written as Lithium Moly...so is this moly or is is different?

They don't make it easy do they.

Mike

Castrol LM or LMM has some Moly content but not the high percentage used for spline lubes on Ks. Usually about 5% where the Honda lube has 60%

Hi Mike,

In a word - No.

http://www.castrol.com/castrol/sectiongenericarticle.do?categoryId=9014109&contentId=7027101

Look at the Motorworks & Motorbins websites, as they also suggest Optimol White TA. for splines.
