1982 CX 500 Custom, 1982 CX 500 Turbo, 1979 Goldwing, 1976 BMW R90, and on, and on, and on.
I just took the final drive off of my 82 CX as part of disassembly to get the frame powdercoated. The Shop Manual had a peculiar caution that read something like "Caution - Pump Grease into Final Drive when Propeller Shaft is Removed from Engine". Usually I am a follow directions kind of guy but wasn't sure if that meant I should do this now while it is sitting idle or upon reassembly. I have two others in boxes from other bikes. Does this mean those are shot if someone didn't pump them with grease? While it was off, I planned on inspecting the drive per the manual and don't want to pump it full of grease now if that isn't what it meant. Can any of you senior high-tech guys explain what Honda meant? Thanks in advance for your help.
