    Welcome to the boards. WD-40 is girly. Get some CRC 6-56.

    Now if you look at the Maintence Schedule in the owner manual you will see that regular maintence involving lubes are:

    Throttle Cable (inspect/lube) [6mon/100hours] and [12mon/200hours]
    Reverse System (inspect/lube) [6mon/100hours] and [12mon/200hours]
    Steering System (inspect/lube) [6mon/100hours] and [12mon/200hours]
    The three above you should use Honda PWC - Unilite M #2
    Part# 08C10-PWC-021

    Throttle Body (inspect/lube) [10hours], [6mon/100hours], [12mon/200hours], and after every ride.
    Turbo (inspect/lube) [10hours], [6mon/100hours], [12mon/200hours], and after every ride.
    Nuts, Bolts, Fasteners, general metals (inspect/lube) [10hours], [6mon/100hours], [12mon/200hours], and after every ride.
    The three above, you should use Anti-Corrision Lube like CRC 6-56, Honda PWC General Purpose Lube Part# 08C10-PWC-008 , Bombardier Lube (not WD-40).

    Bearing Housing (grease/inspect) [6mon/100hours] and [12mon/200hours]
    **FROM HONDA: In the interest of safety, Honda recommend this step be serviced only by an authorized Honda Dealer.
    For the one item above, you should use Honda PWC - Exelite EP2 Part#
    08C10-PWC-020

    And lube this...You will need to reach for it on your F-12X...you can spray in that direction, then rub it in with your hands. The turbo and this thing below are the two most important things to lube. I do it after every ride.



    Spray that thing in red (Wastegate Link) and the thing to the left. That is the Turbo. The throttle body is a cable on top of your motor. It is silver and unscrews. I spray inside of it...and I spray the outside of it. It unscrews by hand. Here is a step by step pic I tore out of the book for you.

    Carlos... Great Job with this post!

    This is a must see for all turbo owners. My 02 F-12x with 90 hours just had a new turbo put in $$$$$
    and I sprayed it with Honda lube after very time out!
    I will now take the rear seat post off to get a better shot at the turbo with the spray!

    Later Robert
