Hey guys,

I'm about to start reassembly of my engine, and the service manual calls for the use of "Molybdenum oil solution" in quite a few places. Section 1 of the engine manual describes it as "a mixture of 1/2 engine oil and 1/2 molybdenum disufide grease".

I've got the offically recommended pro-honda GN4 engine oil, but i havent found anything satisfying for the Molybdenum disulfide grease.
  • I found honda "assembly paste" (08798-9010), but it doesnt say grease on it, and i separately would have expected to see that part number listed in the service manual if this was the recommended stuff.
  • I found a yamaha product called "yamalube", but i cant help but wonder if this product is intended to be "thinned" with engine oil, or if yamaha made it with the intention of NOT being thinned
  • Napa, Autozone, Oreilly, and Advanced Auto all sell a "moybdenum fortified" grease, but those seem like lithium grease that just has some moly in it. is that the same thing as what Honda says i should use??

Help me CBR300-forum-kenobi....you're my only hope.

It's one of those things you really don't need to do-just make sure all moving parts have oil on them and the sump has the right amount in it- and if possible turn the engine over for about 20 seconds or so without the sparkplug in using the electric starter

depends how long before you start it up..
'grease' component is to protect surfaces from wear at first startup..
[eg, cam lobes, bearing surfaces etc]
startup after assembly and oil should not have drained away yet,,
grease clings to wear sensitive surfaces surfaces, which oil washes away on startup/first run - thus change oil and filter soon after..
