    Hope use Hunters silicon plumbing lube. I have a small bottle and it works well. If it’s good enough for Hope, it’s good enough for me. After all, who should know their brakes better than them?

    Silicone lube
    Same stuff hope use but in a bigger bottle than a bike shop will sell you.
    You can use it on suspension seals too.

    I’ve used silicone spray without issue for years, it’s cured a squeaky seal on the master cylinder too.

    castrol red rubber is a little too sticky for mtb calipers.

    use silicone spray (in a cap applied with cotton bud) or brake fluid
