Did you remember to grease the metal sleeving where the sprocket carrier sits, it will wear away if you haven't.

Oh yes indeedy. Aqualube, the best out door, harsh environment grease, I’ve ever used offshore and at sea.

The sun came out, briefly, got out on the bike. I didn’t think the Cush drive rubbers were bad, but changed them anyway seeing as how I’d already bought them. What a difference. Much smoother ride now. Well pleased.

So do you pack the area behind the sprocket retainer where the bush lives with Grease Oddjob? Or just smear grease on the mating surfaces? (I’m not yet that familiar with the 500 rear hub as I’ve always got other to service them for me, but will need to be soon :-) ).

It's just the mating surface that needs it James, you don't want to much in there as the cush rubbers live there as well and grease can affect them, as the cush drive moves back and too under acceleration and engine braking you need to ensure the two surfaces aren't wearing themselves away, it's a Goldilocks amount, not too little, not too much
