Thanks for your input Luke - I have added the info on the white connector and the front sprocket.

The compression damping adjusters, I'm a bit dubious about putting grease on these as I think this will attract grit which could make the problem worse (is it trapped grit or corrosion that makes them seize?). Would it be better to suggest regularly using a bit of dry lube and turning the adjusters in both directions to make sure they don't seize up?

Do you know what I was actually considering it but thought the target audience might not get it, or the reference to the blue ones being considerably faster / slower.
