Default Drive shaft and universal help

I am trying to reinstall my drive shaft into my universal, the universal keeps falling in the down position rear I can not a line drive shaft. What are the tips and tricks to get them to emerge. Any help will be appreciated.

#2 can I use a good marine Grease, or do I have to use Molly Grease.

Get some one to hold the universal joint in the correct position, coat the splines with Molybdenum Grease, The splines are a precision fit so take your time and dont try to force it.
Should go in no problem. Just check there are no burrs or damage to inner and shaft splines before you start. Good luck.

Just can't see how can you hold the universal

Sorry mate, I wasn't very clear.
Ok, facing the side of the bike with the lower chrome plastic cover removed. You will see the rubber universal joint cover.
Release the cover from the left hand side (gearbox) then push the cover to the right towards the swing arm. This should expose the U/J enough for someone to hold it steady.
Then gently enter the drive shaft, (dont forget the moly grease)
Once the drive shaft and final drive is all buttoned up, you can put the rubber cover back as it was.

Not sure if you have the workshop manual, Anyway It was originaly posted by Night Fury Here

Remove the transmission cover. Either pull back the universal boot or you may be able to simply hold the universal yoke up by pressing on the bottom of the boot.

Looks like Steve got you covered while I was posting and 'checking my facts'. Damn, I'm slow .
