This might sound like a simple question, but I'm new to working on bikes. :D What type of grease do I want to use when I'm installing a new (OEM) clutch lever? Someone mentioned white lithium grease.

Thanks.

White lithium is pretty good.

The only reason you need grease at all is to MAYBE stop the lever from squeeking. I installed my lever dry and that works fine.. It´s not like Ducati have a wire like the older R1 and so on.

The only reason I thought I would need grease is because I noticed some grease on my clutch lever now, where the "nub" from the clutch lever rests in the boot. Thanks.

Use a lite coat of standard all purpose ball bearing grease on the pin. That's it.

Dumb question, but when you move your lever should the pin move too? Or should the lever move, and the pin stay stationary?
