Lube for D/A RD PulleysWiseGuy
Aug 24, 2003 2:51 PM
I am in the process of doing a major cleaning and lube of my bike after a summer of rain. What kind of lube / grease should I use on my D/A rear derailleur pulleys?

Please advise!
Light grease or oil, or a mix of the two (nm)Kerry Irons

White lithium grease has been recommended for ceramic bushings.

For DA RDs (and XTRs for that matter) the jockey wheels run full ball bearings. I have used light grease like Slick Honey with good result.
