A bit of thin 'grease'

Judy Butter is just a brand of Fork Grease.

As it is not near anything or oil, it is only there to stop some squeaks and give a protective coating against damp.

So really any lube, vasaline would even be fine.
Stay away from the (not sure what they are called*) but white grease like down finish lines, they dry out over time.

A good dollop.of that greeny transparent castrol stuff people tend to have a tub of would do wel.l.


* Hopefully someone will remember, only just having my first coffee on a Sunday.

The white stuff is usually lithium grease.

I have a big tub of park tool green general grease. Sounds like that will do.

I have superslick and it is great for the seals and things, but for just the springs where it is just for protection.
Any "waterproof" grease would do.

Probably same as Judy butter anyway.
(Anyone know who's they rebrand).

Park one will be fine, it'll be good for the seals to.
(So pop the legs out, give them a clean and lube the bushings and seals up while you're at it.)

i looked into this just a couple weeks back, use Rock N Roll Super Slick Grease:

http://www.rocklube.com/products.html

or Slickoleum, which is what I believe RockShox/SRAM rebrand:

http://slickoleum.com/

I ended up getting the slickoleum as it was more easily available to me and cheaper for a large tube.
