I have not done this, but I observed a trick done by a capable wrench. This is a very, very abbreviated description.
1. Obtain some long
allen head bolts of the diameter and thread count of the bolts that hold the transmission onto the engine.
Note: the goal here is to gain access to the splines without having to completely remove the rear half of the bike.
Next, you want to be able to give yourself an inch to an inch & a half to work in. If your bolts are too long, and the rear end drops off the shaft, you have defeated your purpose.
Also, it is absolutely critical that the diameter and thread count is right. Don't force something that does not fit, or the splines become the least of your worries.
2. Obtain a stubby, medium bristle brush with a long, skinny handle.
3. Jack up the bike.
4. Unbolt and remove the various components necessary to split the bike. When you get to the bolts holding the tranny on, as you remove them, replace them with one of the long bolts. Just hand tighten the long bolts into place.
5. Slide the transmission back far enough to get into the opening with the long, skinny brush.
6. Insert said skinny brush into opening, and dab that Honda moly lube on the splines, being careful not to sling and fling the excess.
7. Reassemble and torqe to specs.
Voi'la! Splines lubed in less than an hour!
