I had no idea.

 

So as someone who's been using the machine for a little over a month now what would you suggest I do @Snakehips ?

 

I'm guessing remove the shower screen and check it? Or should i take it apart and re-grease?

 

@Fez Well, if you don't think it's broke.... don't fix it!

 

That said, it would do no harm whatsoever to remove the showerscreen and check it and the bottom of the piston/group for signs of excess grease. With one month of use, I would suggest that most of any excess will have been driven down and, if visible, should be wiped away. Even then it will do no harm to spend a minute giving the lever a few pumps and wiping again if required. If the screen is coated then you will see or feel the grease and as @jlarkin has said, will need to use acetone or some such silicon solvent in order to clean it. There is a bit more leeway if you are using the original screen but, if like many L-R users, you swap out to a 200µ or 35µ screen then, they will be much more susceptible to clogging. Joe is also right that some users will have experienced screens so blocked that they can pop off under the pressure of a group flush. Of course, this can be as a result of their own overly liberal use of grease when re-lubing seals.

 

I hope that helps.

I wonder if the posts on this might be more useful if we were to have them copied over in the Lever Forum?

Wil do. Bit of an experiment for me over the coming weeks. I filled one to the brim this morning, 20.5-21g so a nice capacity.

I even went for the colour that I poo-pooed on the first Niche thread as resembling a toilet. Really very impressed with the build quality, and I was surprised to note that the shell is metal and not plastic.

 

No shots pulled in anger yet, but very much looking forward to tomorrow.

A surprise package arrived this morning.

I know from experience that this bears all the hallmarks of a gift from, the ever thoughtful, @MildredM

It will, no doubt, be something appropriate, chosen or crafted with care and, probably, expensive.

My mate got something similar, happily swiped it to show me what time it was. I was a bit shocked that it had to be charged every few days.....how far we have come ;)

I only got this because I have the previous version, and it's been spot on. About a week with good use before a charge.

Down from a 17g basket. Having to cut down my coffee intake so I thought this would be beneficial in that goal.

Well, maybe EVERYONE will have to be patient for half an hour and then, if they're still dying to see your generosity, they can mosey on over to the Bar Towels! thread and find out.

Of course, there could be more to it than just a bar towel.

Yeah, Garmins last a while. I’m thinking of Fenix with sapphire glass now since I had a bit of a mishap on my Forerunner 645M and ended up with a scratched face.
