You need high velocity grease, not oil. Does your kpg27 have plastic race holding the needle bearings?

Hi,
one of the best gears in Germany come from Andy Reisenauer. One part of his succses is the geargrease. You need only very less and most modeler have never service there gear for a second time as it stay real long . For competition you will find no better grease.

How old is your gear and is there real oil . i have 3 kpg 27 gear and every gear has grease for lubrication . For oil you need a simmerring or spezial ballbearing to get it seal .
