I saw that could be done with lithium grease, tried it and made very little difference. Plus, I'd rather avoid getting issues in the future or having to do it every 3 months when the grease "runs out".
I will try something else but I'm worried that a denser grease might prevent the ratchets not locking properly...
It can't be that loud that grease couldn't silence it. Serviced and greased a Chris King the other week and yeah, the owner requested for less buzz/clicks and a good dab of synthetic grease did the job with notable reduction.
Could you be missing a seal or two? I know of riders with Hope hubs who have removed the seal between the hub and cassette to make it louder!
I'll give the Lithium grease a go and hope it helps. I found a couple things online that I can try. Basically, they're just low viscosity greases that are specced to make freehub quieter amongst other. I'll test and report back.
I don't think it's missing a seal, or at least hope not since I'm the first owner and haven't had to clean or service the freehub body yet...
Thanks for all the suggestions!
Not using Chris King grease? Tut tut.
