    New question here. greasing the pivots on the 2011 Force 1.0.

    I'm gonna tackle this job soon.
    I have done this on the 2008 but the 2011 is a bit different. Even ehanson007's writeup on the force/sanction thread (page 6) does not really specify which parts to grease and which not to. I whould appreciate a bit more instructions on how much grease to put where.
    On the 2011: Can anyone tell me what parts should have grease on them? I know the bearings need to be cleaned and greased but what else?
    Which parts should be heavily greased and which parts lightly greased, specifically?
    thanks so much for the tips.

    I greased everything where there is metal to metal contact. As far as how much, I would say as much as you can, only so much will stay in there when you assemble the part, the rest will just squeeze out and be wasted. I just rubbed a good amount on each part when I assembled the pivots, etc. Cleaning all the parts is very important, and I recommend a good quality grease like Phil Wood.

    Thanks. That's what I did. I always use Phil Wood too.
