    slick honey instead of judy butter?

    I'm servicing an 04 Duke SL U-turn. The instructions say to coat the spring with Judy Butter. Is it okay to use Slick Honey instead?

    Judy Butter is like Slick Honey with higher viscosity (stickier). Slick Honey tends to thin out faster in heat and may not quiet spring rub inside the stansions as long and might need more frequent maintenance to keep the fork quiet. But no problem using it where Judy Butter is speced, except more frequent maintenance. And Slick honey is a lube with faster, or less damping effect.

    Have been using slick honey instead of judy butter for years and have found that it works better in all conditions.
