Don't use wd40, oils or grease, doing so will attract dirt and cause accelerated wear on the pivot points.

After each ride, and after I hose down my bike, I squirt silicone lube into each joint. Recommended by the bike manufacturer.

Try to get the product, you've already shot into the joints, out of there, then try a goodly amount of silicone spray. Be careful of overspray on rotors and pads.

On my bike there are 12 pivot points, 6 each side of bike. Make sure you don't miss one.

I also apply some of the silicone lube to the fork and shock stanchions.
