look at my splines!

Bringing the K out of winter storage to do a little maintenance catch up. This is the first time seeing my splines, any feed back?

The ones at the front of the drive shaft don't matter - because of the circlip those are not subjected to sliding under load and rarely show much, if any, wear.

The rear ones are fairly worn.

You should probably check your clutch splines too.
