    Suitable Grease for Shimano Clutch?

    My Shadow+ feels a little notchy when the cage travels through its range, so I thought I'd try lubricating the clutch as described here:

    I don't have any of the shimano grease on hand, and can't find it online. I was thinking I'd try some Chris King grease that I have. Any recommendations otherwise?

    Theoretically, you'd want a temperature resistant grease like the quoted internal gear hub grease. Most automotive bearing grease would be suitable.
