    fitting grease

    I have to shorten the rear hose on my oro k18s. The grease it has listed in the manual doesn't exist according to the Kluber website. What are ya'll using, if any? Thanks

    I just use synthetic when trimming the lines on my MEGAs and it worked fine. I think any silicone based synth grease or plain synth grease should do the trick--you only need a tiny amount on the hose exterior to prevent binding when tightening the fitting. If you are still concerned, e-mail Chris @ Formula USA for the straight scoop. I had asked him about this but have forgotten what his answer was.

    Def plan on a minor bleed afterwards, as you will more than likely have a tiny bit of introduced air in the lines.
