What about Lithium base grease?

Know nothing about that stuff. Honda originally came out with the Moly 60 when they were having issues with early 'Wing splines wearing when "normal" grease was used. Issue went away and folks with other shaft bikes started using it to cure their ills too. Fortunately, I have a good supply of the Moly,60, but am going to try the Locktite stuff this go-round.

Curious whats in the Loctite paste, sounds like their implying its a moly product but it clearly states metal free lube on the label which means there's no moly in it at all.

They must have a substitute for that now. Was Moly 60 a paste with 60% moly? Some on the old intruderalert forum recommended ts70 moly paste.

I never found honda moly so I ended up using the regular high temp/pressure moly auto grease. I never had any issues. But I would like a proper substitute next time I change my tire.

Not good.  Grease will wash off -too thin   ( it is grease  and not paste)  Manufacturer  calls for  high percentage of molybdenum for its tenacious grasp on metal parts in harsh conditions.

Normally aspirated engines have perpetual turbo lag

while I usually stay outta "lube" discourses, pretty much all I will say is use "some sort of grease", and as we change tires frequently, its silly to quibble... just clean off the old, and replace it with fresh... I've been using plain old "red" wheel bearing grease, for 15 years on my wheel splines, clean, reapply when I do the next tire swap.. about 5-6k miles... no issues...

Lithium is a fine grease, and very resistant to "wash off", so is "moly paste"(even tho its freaking messy...), as long as you apply "something", you really should not have an issue...

anyways;
