Greasing Drivo belt?

Postby sdrye » Tue Jan 09, 2018 3:44 am

My Drivo has gotten somewhat squeaky. I've seen this video on re-greasing the belt in the Zwift Facebook group, but can't figure out what grease is being used. https://www.facebook.com/jason.feltus.5 ... 023831594/ Is re-greasing the belt something owners are allowed to do, and if we are, what kind of grease should be used?

Support sent me this link and told me to use vasoline. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2n_HS ... ZzREE/view.

I used a white lithium grease on the side of the belt. Noise seems to be from the belt rubbing and as far as I could tell there was no grease in there before I just added some. I could not tell exactly what kind of grease that is in the video. Wladoil greases has this page - http://wladoil.com/portfolio-item/grassi-industria/, but I couldn't tell which one was the exact match.

EDIT: I "couldn't" tell which one was the exact match. I'm not sure exactly what the paste/grease is in the video.

Really, Vasoline?! I too have tried to figure out what type of grease to use (who knew there were so many!) and have resorted to contacting elite and looking at these forums... I don't want to ruin my trainer! As for this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B2n_HS ... ZzREE/view I can't access it for some reason. Thanks for your help.
