Disston, thanks for the post above. Got me to thinking! I have a few cans of spray CHAIN LUBE for my dirt bikes; high tech stuff, supposed to cling - not fly off, lube well, not affected by water/dirt, etc. I am going to try this on my other Beemers as a SPLINE LUBE. Think of the abuse a dirtbike chain must endure; the input shaft splines are living in heaven compared to a chain. Yes! I have discovered the Holy Grail of spline lube.
