Usagi,

Why you keep saying HK people steal money from US....i think rainbow ten is one of the most rip off place you can find on the internet...they are selling the products at the same price as HK guys do, but remember they get their products MUCH cheaper...

I know of one who is doing it M5, but the HK sellers are knewn by buyers that have been ripped off by the ones I wrote above. Anyways M5, I understand your point and others don`t think all HK sellers are bad.

Hey BK, just wondering do you own a 414M?
To answer your question I haven't yet lubed my one-ways, but from what I have heard is that you need a special one-way lube or you can ruin the one-way bearing, but I could be wrong. Anyone want to clarify?
