2009 R1200 GSA Spline Lube

Has anybody used Krytox to lube the spline? Your experience with this lubricant would be appreciated. I am ready to do the final oil change and don't have Moly 60.
Thank you

I don't use wet lubes near a clutch, I use ZEP's dry moly spray. Wet splines are what strips them, clutch dust is a friction material and sticks to grease wearing out the splines.

I think he is referring to the FD, not the clutch splines.

Yep, Jim you are right - I am referring to the FD. Sorry for not being clear. Since there wasn't much feedback on the Krytox I made the trip to the dealership. The technician gave me the product they are using on the FD spline. It is called: Kluberplex BEM 34-132 (BMW Motorcycle Grease) - For use on wing arm, steering head and wheel bearings.

I read about Moly 60, Optimoly-T, Loctite 8012 Moly Paste but I heaven't read anything about BEM 34-132.

Is that the right grease to use on the FD spline?

I drained 200 ml at operating temperature - Any opinion on how much I should put in? 180ml?

Thank you

180 ml is what you should put back in. 200ml was the original number but BMW reduced that recommendation to 180ml.

Sound good. Thanks

Just wondering if anybody has some feedback on the FD spline lube the dealership sells:
Kluberplex BEM 34-132

I am afraid we have a bit of confusion here. Just to clear it up:

Paste lubricants are for FD splines. Products like Moly, Optimoly, etc., are what we are talking about.

What goes inside final drive (180ml, indeed) is a fluid. Castrol SAF-XO 75W90 synthetic lube was the original spec - there have been a lot of variations on the subject since then.
