Clear Grease

Post by CC on Fri Apr 06, 2012 10:46 pm

Can anyone advise on where I can obtain some clear grease? most seems to be a dirty yellowy brown colour and I'm having difficulty trying to obtain some that is clear, want it for areas that are visible like bonnet latch and door hinges etc, any suggestions on brands I should be looking for in particular or links as to where I can get some? don't mind if it's in a tub or cartridge.

The mechanic I use for my car always uses a spray grease on the hinges and locks but it is white not clear. No idea what its called though.

I use 'white' grease for the chain on the motorbikes, its an 'anti-fling' stuff, so it stays put. HOWEVER, ANY grease white or clear will soon turn brown/black/ yeukkie as is ages & collects muck.

Clear Grease

Hi CC

As for greasing say, door hinges, unless there is a grease nipple on the pivot pin, grease on it's own will be pretty useless.
Personally, a quick spray with WD40 (I know its not a lubricant) occasionaly, does the trick. Any residue is easily wiped off.
I think you can get a lubricating spray as well.
Does a bonnet catch really need lubrication? I've seen catches smothered with grease (which get all over your fingers), but are not actually serving any purpose.

Just my 2d worth!

Thanks for the replies, have got some white lithium spray grease but it's pretty messy stuff.. just wanted some clear but not too worry just thought this was readily available and I was just unable to find it but it does seem pretty hard to track down! Certain parts of our Nuevo have the clear grease on from when we bought it and it's still as clear as it was, just looks nicer than that yucky brown stuff which I wouldn't use for areas that are visible anyway.

Hi CC
I've been using this stuff on my Vespa

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

I was using WD40 to keep cables,pedals,brakes etc lubricated until someone told me it was water based and in certain circumstances can do more harm than good.

This ACF50 spray not only lubricates but stops corrosion

Cheers
