Default Iron Cobra double pedal

Any of you guys got a tip on the best lubricant for iron cobras?..The left spring assembly on my pedals have developed an awful squeak! I was told not to use WD40?
Any advice would be great.
Cheers

Use a really light oil. Sewing machine oil is good, as well as some chain lubricants used for bicycles. I use Tri-Flow on my pedals: http://www.triflowlubricants.com/pro...icantdrip.html. Works wonders. Your local autoparts store or bike shop should have some good lubes. And no, WD-40 is not a lubricant and should not be used.

Lithium grease is what Axis recommends for their pedals, and I highly doubt it would hurt you Iron Cobras.

I really like the dry lubes. Tri-Flo is good, I tried a dry lube and like it even better.

The dry lubes are just that, dry. They don't attract dirt, which accumulates when using wet lubes, then the mess becomes contaminated, ugly and hard(er) to clean.

After your next bearing cleaning, try some dry lube.

Hey guys, I have an Iron Cobra Power Glide double pedal and the slave pedal doesn't bounce any where near as much as the the master no matter how tight the springs are . I am guessing I need to lubricant the bearings also, I think the bearings are sealed so how would I go about this. I heard White Lithium grease is good for lubricant so I just picked up spray can of that. Any comments would be appreciated, thanks!
