Tinkseal is fine. I wouldn’t put yamalube back in there. Stock weights don’t last a long time even in grease but I’m sure they’ll make it another round.I didn't know that one had to use nano rollers if going greaseless. Thanks for that. I don't have any and might get them for next service, not this one. For sure then, I can't go greaseless this go around. That narrows things down. I still need some help with how to service the roller/slider cavity. The rest I understand.
Since I'm using the stock rollers (weights), is my only option now, to buy Yamaha grease and use that, make the seal on the outside inner wall and lub up the rollers and sliders a bit? Or can I use Tinkseal with these stock OEM rollers and do the same thing instead of using grease? This is where I'm stuck and am unfortunately clueless on.
The nano rollers/weights threw a monkey wrench into my brain. But thats OK. I want to get it right and if I'm asking stupid questions or doing something wrong, I don't mind being told. I do have Tinkseal. I will have new sliders from Tinken (thanks!). A dealer is not far away and I can easily get the Yamaha grease if thats what I need this time.
The ceramic weights will go thousands of miles. Money well spent!
Use the original sliders you purchased this round. It won’t matter in the least with the Tinkseal keeping dust out. Save the sliders he’s sending you for when you go greaseless.
