Wastegate actuator arm
Thought I would post up some additional pictures of the wastegate actuator arm that requires routine lubrication.
Light oil, WD40, CRC or similar needs to be applied after every ride, preferably when warm. Just a squirt, no need to drown it. You need to give it a push once in a while just to make sure it still moves freely against the spring pressure.
Rocky Road came up with a neat solution years ago with a pipe cleaner wraped around the shaft and he kept it well oiled.
Add the lubricant where the yellow paint is (I put the paint on this one so the owner would not forget)
