The best stuff you can buy is Krytox. It's a solid form of Teflon and expensive, but very durable and impervious to heat and cold. Straight old dielectric grease will work and it's pretty cheap. I think you can get 3 tubes from Mid America for about $10. You'll just end up applying it fairly often.
I've used both, and prefer Krytox.

Do you have a preferred source for Krytox?

Krytox is available from MidAmerica. I think it's about $30 a tube. You should also be able to find it in a local bike store for less.

Thanks!

Do you mean bicycle store, or motorcycle store?

I meant bicycle store. It's widely used as a chain lubricant on performance bicycles.
I looked thru my catalogs last nite and Eckler's carries Krytox, not MidAmerica.
Their price is $30.
