grease for a fork coil spring


Well-Known Member
I started noticing some problem with my coil fork a couple of months after the last rebuild. I felt stiction between lowers and uppers and it got worse with cold weather. I could improve the situation with few oil drop on upper tubes but only temporally.

I disassembled the fork today and found that oil in the left leg is very stiky... oil dissolved grease that I put "liberally" on the coil according RS Service Manual. I use EPX cycle grease.

Guys, could you recommend any grease for a coil sping that does not react with oil

Thanks guys

do yo have slick honey in stock?

red rum probably is not going to stay on a coil and will mix with oil as well
