    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?
    Thanks

    here is a link that might help out, go down a little and you will find several useful links and a youtube video

    http://thelazyrando.wordpress.com/20...-alfine-8-igh/

    oops, I just saw you were looking for 11, not the links 8 speed...well maybe something in there will help out

    also try this internal gear forum, if anyone can help out they can over there

    Found several sources. (Simply had to use the word correct terminology )
    Amazon carries
    Universal Cycles Carries
    For the person who commented about losing the manual..Hub came with a simple print out sheet of how to install.
    Have had to scour the web to find folks with alfine 11 setups to get tips and hands on advice.
    From that; I'm building up my own how to manual.
