Tak Lapides Regrease advice sought
      #4357854 - 02/02/11 11:14 AM

Has anyone dismantled their Tak Lapides and re-greased it with Skidoo grease or anything else so that it works smoothly in cold temperatures?

I had mine re-greased by a friend before I moved to cold climates. It's fine down to -15-->-20C but I've finally got my clothing working for me down to -40C/F but the mount ceases after 30 mins. I was out last night for 1.5hrs and could have gone about 3hrs with working equipment.

Any advice would be most appreciated.
