    You'll always see a lot of fuzz on the magnet using syn 3, it's only gear material that should be on the gear set and not on the magnet. Syn 3 is an engine oil (if you want to call it that) and a poor excuse for what they refer to as a synthetic oil when it's not a true synthetic but a blend.

    Exactly what oils & fluids do you use Glider? I use Syn 3 in everything because it is simple but I would rather use the proper lubricants.
    Thanks!

    Best to get that Syn 3 out of the bike.

    Here's all the good oils to use, this is what I use.
