W8NONU Posted November 1, 2007 Share Posted November 1, 2007 I received the infamous spinal tap tool from Jamie KMG365 and performed the quickie spline lube. Commuted to work on the bike this morning and although there were a couple of times when downshifting felt a little hard I did not have any instances where I had to blip the throttle to down shift. This afternoon on the way home (the weather was a bit warmer) the shifting has become a little more fluid. I hope a couple more runs on the bike will move enough lubricant into the splines to consistently shift smoothly. The whole task took only a couple of hours. It was relatively simple and I don't like wrenching on the bike, but the cost at the dealer was a nice incentive . Now, with the money saved I can buy another farkle. Ain't life grand.
