    Just use some Lithium Grease better known as white lube it will work just fine and Wal-Mart or any parts store sells it.

    I just use oil to lube it up allthough the white litium doesn't sound like a bad idea.

    you can order super lube from grainger or mcs real cheap.

    also west marine carries a tube for like $6.(you didn't hear that from me)

    I have always wondered why SD tells you not to use slippery synthetic oil, then tells you to pack the clutch with a just as slippery grease ?? Go figure?

    I would say that the grease is just to help with the initial seating between several new raw surfaces that need to seat together. And will quickly be replaced with motor oil.

    A little slippage is ok to seat, but you wouldn't want to do it for the whole life of the motor (hence a non friction modifier oil)

    My 2cents

    Seems that in some cases as soon as the grease wears out, the clutch shatters.....I bet if a good synthetic oil WITH FRICTION MODIFIERS were used with the HD clutches, there would be a lot less cases of them blowing. Maybe SD's solution to the stock clutch slipping is the root of the problems we are seeing now !!!
