wind deflectors on a GTL

If your having trouble moving your wind deflectors just spray some maint spray where the thing turns on the pivot . Dealer told me if there stiff and you keep moving them they will break off .

Funny you should mention that when oorty was over at the treffen from germany he noticed that his deflectors were very tight compared to mine.

Thanks for the tip - I just sprayed a bit of dry PTFE lube on them and they open and close very easily now.
