Ksyrium ES Rear Hub Issue

My rear Ksyrium ES seems to "drag" when I spin the rear wheel when in the bike stand. I'm the original owner, crashed the wheel and bent the axle in '08, and since I had the mavic insurance, the wheel was repaired.

I have ridden the wheels little since the repair; maybe 500 miles. I checked the hub adjustment, and it seemed fine. Did a search of prior posts, and found several discussing cleaning/re-lubing the freehub. I looks pretty straightforward; any Ksyrium owners have the same issue and find that it was fixed by doing this?

It can't hurt to clean and re-lube the hub. I have two Mavic wheelsets, and I clean and lube them regularly.

It could also mean that the white bushing in the freehub is shot.
