Which steering head grease ?

1 post in this topic

I finished the electrical mods on the bike, which was phase 1. Now I'm about to start phase 2. Which is installation of grease nipples for the steering head bearings and the swing arm pivot points.

Considering that the frame contains the engine oil. This oil will transfer heat to the frame nearby the steering head bearings.

Is this heat hot enough to "cook" the bearing grease ?

I have on hand some synthetic grease (Prolab GS-1000), that has a temperature range of -40 deg F to 400 deg F. I intend to use it for all the lub points on the bike that require grease. Any suggestions ?

Thanks,
