The pulley bearings (or bushings?) on my rear der. are squealing and binding after a good work out. I recently dripped a little lube down on them which loosened them up and quieted them down. But now, on my next ride, they are binding and squealing again. The der. has about 300 miles on it.
1) I've never had this issue with any XTR rear der. in the past, am I supposed to lube the pulleys periodically? I do not ride through mud or water EVER.
2) If this is a sign telling me that it's time for new pulleys, I'd like to upgrade to something hopefully lighter and more reliable. Your suggestions, please...
