that's why this inside needs to be dry lubed in the first place.

Anyways, once the lube is gone it smears (and insufficient maintenance makes this worse)
Fresh out of the box with a bad gear ratio, the lube lasts for maybe minutes not months.. soooo yeah.

The little chinese fellow must have used black/ dark grey dry lube on mine, straight out of the box mine was a very similar color. They could very well have used a graphite based dry lube
Ill go get some dry lube and clean all my black off so i can keep an eye on things better.
Due to not getting instruction or manual with the clones I was wondering what this black stuff was all about. now I now thanks.
