Okay, got the new bike pulled about and working on properly greasing everything. On the steering head I have been a bad boy in the past and just torqued down the steering nuts while they were dry but reading the new manual (I am sure the old 426 manual says the same thing if I ever looked at it...) it says to use lithium soap based grease on the steering stem threads. Transworld website has a nifty how to spot that shows a nice clean red anti-sieze agent. I have looked at all of my local parts stores and bike shops and all the anti-sieze lubes are this gunky grey stuff. I have read about the anti-sieze lubes and understand why they are think and grey but can I am now assuming I can just use a good bearing grease like maxima or bel-ray instead? I think it would be much easier to work with and also much "cleaner". Any real world experience between the two? Just looking for info/advice and I am getting ready to put everything back together. Oh, also, the lower nut (I could do a lot with that statement), one spot in the manual says to torque it, back it off, then litely tighten it. Another part just says to lightly tighten it? Is it important to have that initial torque setting to set the bearing or something? I don't have the proper tool (I don't think anyone does) so I don't think I really have choice but to put it on hand tight???
