Also what kind of oil/lube are you using after cleaning them?

Thanks!

I would use would be motor spray and lubricate with a synthetic oil. I've purchase this lubricant pen that I can add any lubricant to. It works great for items like this and fits right in my RC box.

To be honest bearings are relatively cheap to replace and I would recommend that. Avid sells bearings with the rubber seals for a buck a piece. Take you old ones to clean and use as backups.

Do you have the name or a link for the lubricant pen you're talking about? Sounds like a good idea.

Honestly if you know a diabetic person who uses insulin.
You could just borrow a syringe, would work perfectly!

I'm not sure "borrow" is the proper term here. I have a feeling no diabetic really wants it back after you have used it.

it would appear that the proper bearings are included in the CE kit.

Search eBay for pen oiler. There are several variations.

This is the one I used. Won't get banged up and crack in your tool box and it is refillable. The others would work well if you are just keeping it home or in a safer place.

As for a syringe, if you are not used to working with them then stay away from them.

No need to go crazy with the oil though, just enough in there to coat everything.

You need the new top shaft part # 91606. It uses the same bearings as the idler gear shaft.

Just received my SMC 4400mah packs and I have to say I'm digging the shorty packs..lol
I guess it just didn't sink in how much smaller they are till I got one in my hand next to a 5000 standard..
Tires and wheels should be here tomorrow and then I just need to settle on what electronics I want to order. Then the rewiring..

I just ordered two of the same packs, can't wait to get them. I have to do a re-wire too, I'll save that for last.

There nice packs and only took 3 days to get to me so am very happy.
I'm waiting to get everything together before I even attempt at wiring. Being my first buggy this is very tight and I want everything figured and in place before I tackle what at this point is looking like a cluster..lol

Oh and if you have the side foam in battery tray you will need to remove. The packs are tight side to side..
