Actually a very good question!
What's your intention? A list of comparable products available in the US?

I use Motorex because it's a Swiss brand with good reputation:

Motorex Lithium Grease 218M (I use this for almost everything execept bearings or highly stressed stuff, really super stuff)

Motorex Grease 177 for Grips, corrosion protection of my tools, assembling bearings and such things

Motorex Copper Paste

For Molybdenum, I go with Molycote

heres my opinion

A,B,C,D can be safely replaced with lucas oil , bel-ray, spectro , maxima, and fuchs silcoline . or any reputable motorcycle lubricants. most sell equal or superior products. I think for "A" I'd go with lucas lithium . and bel ray, specto and possibly silcoline for the rest .

E looks to be for the rods. are you tearing down the motor to that level?

I'd use a reputable assembly grease/lube for E and F


Id guess copper grease is generic and you just run into a auto parts store and ask for anti-seize .

Hey Mike

Just talked to some old italian motorcycle techs (MV and Ducati).
for the front and rear axle (heavy duty/corrosion resistant), they make an oath on Loctite 8009...

Hopefully you never need E. It's for the con rod bolts!
