    What type of grease?

    I'm going to be greasing the driveline splines , wanted to know what type should be used and if you had any preference on brand. Also, the steering nozzle pivot, what type of grease should be used there, thanks?

    For grease fittings and drive shaft splines, you want a marine grade waterproof lithium based grease.

    I get mine in the mini grease gun cartridges, takes up less space for a less often used grease and is a little easier to get to the drive line fitting with the smaller gun. Same stuff works well for the trailer wheel bearings as well. If you have a sure lube type axle or bearing buddies just use the same grease gun for ski and trailer.

    I don't lubricate my steering nozzle pivots, just rely on the nylon bushings and the natural slop therein to allow for easy movement. There is a lot of water moving around the nozzle and pivots.

    Perhaps I should consider some lube there

    If the steering cable is internally lubricate and working smoothly, and the handlebar shaft is lubricated, the steering should be easy to move on land and in the water.

    I have heard good things about the Polaris all season grease. I have a new tube of it all ready to load up when my currend grease cartridge runs out.
