I use green slime to build shocks, use silicone to seal up your engine

I always used green slime on my carb needle o rings. It sealed them up, and made the needles much smoother to turn. I also use it for shock o rings, diff o rings, pretty much any O ring that needs lube.

Yes, I love that stuff. It's just a silicone based lubricant.

I've also used Vaseline on carb needles with good results.

You can get a much better deal on green slime by going to a local bike shop and asking to Noleen sf-3, its a fork seal lube. You can use any fork seal lube, there is also a produce called sticky honey which is the same thing. The above are about the same price as a tube if green slime, and you get about 10x more. That is what I use now.

Thats exactly the info i was looking for, i was wondering what it really was, im sure it's used for more things but Fork Grease is probably primary, i think Yamaha makes some, so does Diawa for fishing reels....

The only problem I see with reel grease, is some have polishing compounds in them to keep the gears and surfaces corrosion free and clean. Though you won't be turning the needles enough for that to matter, I figured I would toss in that fun fact for the night.

That is true, i know the greases for salt water have those compounds not sure if they are rough on the metal though..
