HOTCAM assembly lube

Recommended Posts

Hi i bought a stage 1 hotcam for XR650R and forgot to buy assembly lube i live in West Africa and cant get it here. I do have some hi pressure spline / shaft grease and was wondering whether i could mix this with engine oil to use on the lobes for the initial start up, or just use gear oil on lobes ??

Engine will be run straight away after assembly.

If the grease contains moly compounds, it will work. But use your normal engine oil rather than gear lubes. Mix a thin paste and apply SPARINGLY, just a coat over the contact surfaces. Keep the engine idle up a bit higher than normal for the first 20 minutes or so.
