Motorcycle Grease question - January 29, 2010, 01:42 PM

I'm looking to install some new levers on my bike. One of the steps involves applying grease into the pivot hole of the new levers. Maybe a stupid question, but what kind of grease would one use for this? I just wanna make sure I don't use the wrong kind. Any advice would be appreciated.

A light water-proof grease would work well.

Is there a specific product you could recommend? Preferably one I could pick up from a place like Advanced Auto Parts.

Just pick up a tube of water-proof grease.
Brand doesn't matter.
Just use a very thin coat .

It's just grease...don't over think it!


What do you value more? Life or Image?
