Question about 1996 Yamaha Royal Star XVZ 1300 A
The drive shaft on the Royal Star can make noise
if both ends are not properly lubricated; tourers have found that lubricants with a high molybdenum disulfide content applied to both ends at about 15,000 mile intervals will
eliminate that aggravation. A readily available lubricant, Honda Moly 60 paste (60% molybdenum disulfide by weight) has been used by Goldwing owners for years, and it works just as well on Royal Stars.
Hypoid gears in the final drive can also be noisy. Short of having the drive disassembled and replacement shims installed, changing to a good synthetic 75W-140 lubricant will quiet or eliminate the whine.
Splines and pins in the final drive and rear wheel assembly can also cause noise. Remove the rear wheel, put a thin layer of Honda Moly 60 paste on the pins, dampers and in the drive spline, ditto with the mating spline on the final drive. I relubricate all of these every time I change rear tires, probably more often than necessary, but it's convenient to do when the wheel is off.
