SHIMANO Special grease for pawl-type Freehub bodies 50 g,White
About this deal
For those of you have have been using a thicker grease with no problems, then I see no reason to stop if that works.
I actually trim the bearing seals around the edge to reduce the drag of the contact between the rubber seal and the bearing race. We did a spring ride knowing tIf the motion gets freer by virtue of the grease thinning, the same thing would be required every time you ride the bike or even start pedalling again having freewheeled for the first time after a long climb or whatever.
I know other mechanics who simply use grease and swear by it, claiming that a properly built and perfectly tensioned wheel shouldn’t require a thread locking agent.IME it is preferable not to remove the freehub body unless you absolutely have to; by all means check to see that it is tight whenever you have the chance, but they often settle in position and they have to re-settle once they have been removed and replaced.
Then slide the freehub body onto the axle, replace then end cap and there you go: one serviced freehub.All export and retail can purchase our latest technology, low VOC’s PRO X Freehub Grease which can be shipped worldwide via air freight and Parcel Post from www. I prefer a lighter lubricant during colder months and a little heavier lubricant in the heat of summer. It is important to distinguish between shimano style freehub bodies and the others, where the freewheel body rotates on the axle using its own set of bearings, which is what I presume you have.
