    unlucky. I'd just not start it and ring G-werks or Jabbasport to be sure. I wouldn't have thought a bit would do much damage but maybe would if you kept doing it, but I don't know enough about them

    Er, chargers are very specific about the lube they need. As above I'd recommend talking to either Jabba or G-Werks before even thinking about running it.

    I spoke to G-Werks this morning and they told me as long as there is no silicon in the greece it will be fine, i checked the ingredients and there is no mention of silicon so hopefully all is ok.They told me that the reason silicon can be a problem is that it glazes the lamba probe.
