My opinion only as others will follow with their experience. The problem with lubrication is that it attracts and holds dirt which impedes the free movement of the bearings on the shaft. I do use a very light coating of lithium grease, I've tried anti-seize in the past and it seems to become quite dry and sticky with time hindering the free movement of the bearings. Sometimes think that no lubricant may be the best solution.

NONE. Lubrication risks contaminating the friction disc.

The bearing must slide freely on the hub, so we recommend a VERY thin coat of anti-sieze during assembly, but nothing more.

Other opinions will follow and are welcome of course.

Thank you for your reply! Was wondering besides a little dab of grease on the fork tips was there something thing out there that wouldn't be a dirt magnet, provide some lubrication on the shaft while also impede any corrosion on the shaft?

I don't know about corrosion protection. But I have used some silicone spray with good results. I spray the parts before assembly and let dry, then assemble. It leaves a thin white and slippery residue. I had tried spray graphite, but that goes down thicker and needed to be polished down some. The silicone spray works well on sticky padlocks too ;)

T9 Boesheild is awesome stuff. Developed by Boeing. It goes on like WD-40, but leaves a residue for corrosion protection. I am not sure how much dirt it would attract.

SORRY brain fart :oops: What I was thinking of is a "Blaster" product called TDL (The Dry Lube). It leaves the slippery white residue, and not silicon it is PTFE.

Cheers,
