    Grease help

    Hi Guys,

    I'm living in Ireland (wet and muddy) and loving my "new to me" 08 5spot. I read on the turner website that I should use Manitou motorex prep m grease, and that I need a micro needle grease gun.

    I haven't been able to find either of those things over here. I was going to order the grease gun and grease from Turner, but the shipping/duty fees would cost more then the whole package ($30.00 for gun/grease kit, $34.00 for shipping, plus brokerage and duty fees!)

    I've ordered stuff in the past from:
    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/

    But they don't have any prep m right now.
    What is everyone else using for grease? Do I need a special grease gun?
    I'd appreciate any advice anyone has to offer.
    Thanks
    Tim

    Judy Butter is very similar to prep M. Silkolene do something very similar as well, but I forget the part/model number. Someone should chime in soon.

    The grease gun is made by Dualco and is a standard size tip. Any tool/hardware store should be able to get one. The Turner one is nice as they sell it with a long needle, though maybe that's not necessary on the new DW bikes?

    Tim,
    Check with Dave Wuff @ Turner via the warranty page, he can help to ship at cheaper rate via USPS but shipment can't be tracked like you can with FedEx.

    I am ordering the same grease and gun (and zerks and derailer hanger) via USPS to be shipped all the way to Malaysia.

    He estimated it's about $10-15. That's a lot of diff.


    Regards,
