I want to clean my rear cogs. I removed the cogs from the hub, I have a lockring type hub. I was thinking of removing the cogs, seperating them, then cleanning them of with some degreaser.
Anyway when I tried to seperate the cogs, biggest four would not seperate. I think there are three pins running through them. I haven't seen anyone mention anything about that. Is there a special tool that can be used?
Also a question about reassembling, what exactly do I need to regrease/reoil? I'm assuming I need to put some grease on the freehub. I bought a tri-flow synthetic grease for that. Do I need to oil the cogs themselves? If yes will WD-40 do the trick, because I don't think WhiteLightning I use on my chain will be good for re-oiling the cogs.
