Changing the oli on the alfine11 Internal Geared Hub
Shimano 'dictates' (this goes beyond recommend )siphoning the oil out of the alfine11 hub at 500 miles-purging with new oil-draining and refilling.
Problem is: I cannot find a link to the siphon and thread in boss to do the job.
The threading in the hub is fine thread metric not pipe so maby a diy thread in nipple could be cobbled but I'd rather have the correct stuff .
Anyone know of a link (tried shimano, tried the LBS)?
Anyone made their own and if so what did you use?
