I have just used the Krytox105 oil on the pawls and seals, in conjunction with R&R Red Devil grease, and repacked the main ABEC5 Sealed Bearings with Krytox205 grease.
So far, it seems to be very good and very smooth. The R&R Red Devil grease makes the pawls very quiet without affecting their spring action
Hi All, after some testing with using the Krytox105 oil and 205 grease, well, I have changed my mind.
I would not use Krytox205 grease anywhere on a bike, but maybe the Krytox225 grease is ok
I have found that the Belray Waterproof grease (or the Nulon Extreme Performance Grease) is better (much better).
This is what I did and recommend (unless the manufacturer states otherwise) ...
For sealed or loose bearings I use Belray Waterproof grease (or the Nulon Extreme Performance Grease).
The FreeHub I have has a needle bearing so I applied a generous amount of Belray Waterproof grease to this bearing.
For the pawls I smeared a generous amount R&R Red Devil grease around them (it does not stick), a small amount on the ratchet teeth, and a small amount on the seal.
At least for my hub it now spins and freewheels nicely
