    greaseable bolts...otherwise to get grease in there you're gonna have to remove them and do it by hand.

    I know a lot of people do it even though you're 'supposed' to use silicone based grease...problem with silicone grease and grease guns/zerks is that shit does not want to go through them, tacky AF. The Energy suspension and Daystar stuff is like tar

    yeah, plus I always have red n tacky in the grease gun and I'm not inclined to change it out when its such a mess lol

    not sure if the last tube I got was a bum or what but it's separating and dripping red oil out of the grease gun :(

    Haha thats been my strategy so far. Its honestly wild how loud it got in the last few days. Everything from braking to the tiniest shift in weight side to side and its chirping it me.

    I do love anything in the sprayable format...

    I like Dry Lubricant for spray stuff...it's not all goey like spray silicone or spray lithium grease, that stuff works but man it makes a mess and dirt sticks to it like crazy

    dry lubricant won't last as long but it won't attract dirt and make squeaks worse over time

    but really for poly bushings you have to get the grease "in there" and the spray probably won't help much if at all.

    yeah I think its the same stuff sold as lock lubricant too, or at least similar. Think some of it is dry graphite lubricant. Don't want to spray goey lubricant in a lock or it'll fuck it up in short order

    Depends on how dusty. The bay trail I used to hit would leave the entire lower section of the bike covered in dust. I'd clean it every couple of rides.

    This is way too intellectual of a conversation to be having for the LT :rofl:

    But I figured you'd enjoy it.

    Fastenal has a couple of branches close by but I usually skip over them since they are by appointment only. Tyler will probably chime in on that one.
    Ace definitely, just have to go in there I guess.
