I'm confused (my usual state:))
What lubricant to I use on the final drive shaft?
I've been recommended Molycote BR2

The FSM says to use NLGI No.2 Lithium based grease with molybdenum additive. This is ordinary moly/lith grease that can be found in standard grease gun cartridges for a reasonable price at any auto parts store. It is a suitable lubricant for all parts of your bike that need grease except places where you should use silicone grease like the brakes, electrical components and anything rubber (it keeps rad hoses from becoming glued on and helps keep the grommets that hold the side covers on from hardening).
