Yamaha S80 Key Lubricant

I have disassembled an S80 and cleaned all keys, hammer weights and frame. As I reassemble, what type of lubricant and at what points is recommended? Thanks…tony

After doing a lot of research this past week on key lubricants for my Korg, I bought “Super Lube multipurpose synthetic gease” from Amazon. The tech specs on this are similar to the original lubricant used by Yamaha (which if you can find it is very expensive). I’ve included some of my research links below. I hope this helps. So far, it’s worked well for me.

    Since I’m new the Syntaur forum, I am only allowed to put 2 links. I have 5 more. However, if you do a search on “key grease” for your particular brand, you should find the same discussion boards.
