Final drive seal?

Took final drive off to clean and grease and found some sorta goop. It looks like there were trying to seal something. Everything I have looked at doesnt mention a gasket. So anyone have a idea what this is or is there actually a gasket?



Thanks to all

Nope, shown o-ring IS correct. Clean those splines and final drive spines.....re-lube them with the special Moly for that application, which you can purchase from your local Honda dealer. BTW, internal final drive shaft splines are lubed using that grease zerk atop the final drive shaft tube. Do NOT remove the final drive to lube them. Captian Zap and I have both proven that grease zerk IS correctly located at correct angle for lube to cover those splines...….thirty pumps with conventional type grease gun gives approx. 1oz. of lube. Do this at each oil/filter change or 3,000miles.

Are you talking about the end that bolts to the swing arm where the drive shaft mates up? That gray colored stuff could be Yamabond or Permatex, some sort of sealer to keep grease from seeping out. I've used a thin layer of Yamabond there every time I've had the final drive off my bikes so that may be what you are seeing.

Thanks guys. Motoman, I had read some where on this site that to properly lube the splines the final drive had to come off. At any rate they are well lubed now and I will remember your advise at the next oil change.

So... enquiring minds want to know. How much grease was on the splines? I suppose you manually applied grease this time since you had the works apart.

They were a little dry. There was small traces of grease but not really coated. I cleaned and then packed the final drive cup(?) full of molly as well as around the drive shaft spline. There were some nefarious noises as I mated the two together which I think indicated the grease was well spread amongst them.
