Final Drive Maintenance

These final drive components get over looked more times than not.

Visit this link from our pal Dr. Piston:

scroll down to items numbers 11 and 12.

The pictures below shows the splines that need to be greased usually during a tire change or whenever the rear wheel is removed. The hub splines and the drive shaft splines. Also, periodically drain the final drive fluid and replace with fresh lubricant:
