The owners manual recommends lubricating a bunch of places, some spots with grease & others with motor oil.
What stuff do you guys use for this?

- For the grease will the multipurpose lithium grease sold at walmart work?
- Motor oil do you buy the gear oil? what weight? The manual doesn't recommend please help.

+1. vegetable works great
Vegetable oil turns rancid, though. :p
just rinse with water and reapply
Synthetic grease may be a tad better than lithium because it is more water resistant. As for the bits that require oil, whatever you put in your crankcase will work fine.
