Should I lubricate my rubbers?

Recommended Posts

Now that I have your attention, I had my wheels powder coated, and I was wondering if I need to put grease or anything on the cush drive rubber bits.

Thanks for your prompt response,

Ken

You need to make sure the rubber and grease is compatible .

I lubed my rubber bits. I sprayed the cush rubbers and the pockets with molybdenum disulfide dry lube spray. 

Greg Field wrote about a good idea you can do to the cush rubbers here:

For the spline to the wheel, you might think about Kluber Staburags NBU 30 PTM. BMW part #. 07559062476. Expensive but good.

Thanks so much, Marty! I just ordered the Moly dry lube and Kluber 30PTM. Should have them both on Friday.

Rear wheel rubber pads, schockabsorbers,,,, seems just ready for a treatment with M 321 and beemer grease,, after some more cleaning. None in there since 03.
Did read quite a few ARGUMENTS back from 2007 about all the rubber ideas , drilling holes, removing pads? Thats more than 15min ago, any conclusions?
My pads dont feel hard hard,,, so drilling holes,, nææ, looking at my splines all good, so I will keep on listening to her up and down in the mountains,, splineswear or not,,, in a month or.
Ipa time.
