Default Lubing the Pearl Demon

How often should I lube the bearings in the Pearl Demon? Thanks.

Is it me, or does "Lubing the pearl demon" sound like a euphemism for masturbation?

I would think since the Demon is new you have a while. It may also be one piece that requires no lubing under normal use.

Honestly, just b/c Demon Drive is expensive shouldn't mean it gets treated different than any other pedal.

Feed it (lube) when its hungry. About one light-feeding every 40-50 hours of playing time.

If you take good care of it, you probably shouldn't need to lube the bearings for over 5 years. It's the U-joints and various connectors that start giving you problems.

Whenever you lube it, you should also clean it. Being near the ground, pedals pick up lots of dust, lint, fibers, etc. If you play and move it around a lot, I'd say at least once or twice a year you should clean all the parts with a solvent soak, then oil them with light machine or sewing machine oil.
