- Provides the absolute highest performance and protection for your most critical bearing applications.
A premium, all-purpose, NLGI #1.5, extreme pressure, synthetic lithium bicycle grease that meets tough GC-LB bearing performance requirements. This rating means Syn Grease Plus will provide the absolute highest performance and protection for your most critical bearing applications. Syn Grease Plus is also fantastic for assembly tasks, threads, and component interfaces, formulated to have an excellent dropping point, superior water resistance, and outstanding structural stability over an extremely wide range of temperatures. Syn Grease Plus is the grease of choice for those that demand the best.
- Clean or degrease component as needed prior to application of grease.
- Apply light coating of grease to component surfaces and wipe all excess.
- Syn Grease is recommended for all bicycle applications including wheels and bearings.
Syn Grease Plus
Bio Grease is not recommended for bearing applications. It should be used for assembly tasks, great for threads, ensuring accurate torque and protecting against corrosion, and great for component interfaces, ensuring easy adjustment and removal and again preventing corrosion. For bearing applications, we recommend our new Syn Grease Plus (available mid 2013) which meets tough GC-LB requirements, the highest rating for bearing performance classification. This rating means Syn Grease Plus will provide the absolute highest performance and protection for your most critical bearing applications.
Grease Injectors can be a little finicky and most problems users have can be attributed to air pockets. We suggest the following techniques:
1. Before attaching the grease tube to the injector, make sure grease is present at the tip of the tube or even starting to come out of the tube.
2. Screw the grease injector onto the grease tube.
3. Next, squeeze the grease tube from the bottom (like a toothpaste tube) to push grease from the tube into the injector. The idea is to replace all air in the injector with grease.
4. As you are pushing grease from the tube into the injector, squeeze the trigger of the injector to determine if the grease has moved into the injector. The injector will become harder to squeeze once it is moving grease.
5. Once grease is in the injector, squeeze the trigger slowly until grease starts coming out of the trigger tip. Pause between each squeeze of the trigger to allow the grease to move. Since grease is very thick, it takes time to move after air pressure is applied. If you squeeze the trigger many times in a row very quickly, it builds up pressure and leads to an uncontrolled stream of grease (makes a mess) and may create air pockets which will disrupt the flow of grease requiring you to start back at step 2.
6. Once grease has fully filled the space within the injector, you should have consistent performance. After extended use, some air pockets may occur as the tube empties. If this happens repeat these steps again to refill the injector and remove air pockets.
