Default Do you grease on Derlin Pedal Bushing ?

I have read that Derlin is self lubricating, also read people saying they asked AKG people and they said you can ? I have rogue Derlin Bushings.

If yes which one ?

Delrin is a very slippery material; not sure I'd call it self-lubricating the way a powered metal bearing (think heater fans in cars, stove hood vent motor in houses, etc) is.
Can't hurt to lube it lightly and this might help installation if nothing else.

Don't suppose it's necessary but if it really squeaks, plastic bushing grease will solve it

Thanks, then it has to wait for tomorrow as I don't have grease at home.

A very light coating of teflon still can't hurt; maybe not needed but can't hurt.

AKG recommends to use wheel bearing grease for their derlin bushing, maybe will use that.

Is fine, I did a quick wiki check, Delrin doesn't like chlorine even from chlorinated water or acids, but greases should be fine. Wheel bearing grease is generally heavier/thicker than teflon/PTFE grease; doubt you'd feel the difference either way.

You'll need to use to a lubricant regardless. Maybe even sand paper so that the pedal doesnt stick. It's a really stiff bushing. I have RE delrin bushings
