Default What lubricant for caliper slide pins?

i changed the brakes at 90k and overlooked greasing the slide pins and now i want to re-lube it. the brake system works excellent still, i'll have a piece of mine knowing there is fresh and excellent lube there to protect my pins from wearing out and or seizing. Heard a lot of mixed reviews on sil-glyde, crc sta-lube and the whole line up of permatex brake lube. What have you used thats a proven replacement of what honda uses?... molykote m-77 i think?.....that stuff is hard to find and really expensive, so i think i'll pass on it.

i used the synthetic grease(leftover from energy suspension bushing kit :D) n mix it with synthetic marine grease(YAMAHA grease D)......as long as it's non-oil based i think you'll be safe. main concern is lube it without degrade the rubber boot isnt it?

Use silicone brake lubricant, anything else is a waste of money, or will potentially swell the rubber components. Its 2 bucks at any parts store.

Molykote was the best but is no longer available in small quantities for purchase.(I searched and searched) However Honda does provide a small packet of Moly with every set of brake pads. If that is unavailable I personally use Wurth Silicone. It is a little pricey but well worth it. One tube will last me about 6 months or so, but this is with several dozen brake jobs in addition to what ever else i may use it for. (I use it for EVERYTHING) if you are a DIY'er it may well last you for years. You only need to use a little dab here and there.

silglyde only...or some synthetic lubricant that is specific for slide pins only.

if you use any sort of anti-seize compound on the slide pins you will have seized caliper pins in no time.

Correct. Anti seize has a tendency to congeal and will usually cause the slide pins to seize up. I have corrected this problem more than once.

^ This. I've had to beat calipers off with a sledge hammer and even go so far as to use a torch, air chisel and a sledge on one that was seized on the slide pins so bad from using neverseize. Btw, Honda doesn't use M-77 on the slide pins, just on the anti-rattle clips and the backs of the pads.

In the 80's they said to apply it to all of the calipers sliding parts. In the 90's they said to use silicone grease. Now they have no recommendations for the pins, the packet of Moly included with the OE brake pads works well, however.

When I was working there last summer we were using silicone brake lube.

Not so much. I tried it before I worked for Honda, it came with the pads so I figured I'd try it, about a month in I had to beat the calipers off with a hammer. My dealership used to give us a tube of clear silicone lube for doing the slide pins, but if you got a caliper rebuild kit they came with a packet of orange stuff (which is what they normally used to from the factory)
