grease for fork spring

Postby naffa » Thu Nov 08, 2012 23:40 pm

I am going to change the spring in my RS tora uturns. The manual says to grease the spring before insertion. So what type of grease do I need and how much of a coating will it need?

Thanks Nathan
Cheers Nathan.

Use Rock n Roll Super Slick on forks, also good for free hubs and suspension bushes

Is a 120ml tube likely to be enough?
