Cleaning and lubing the insides of a rear Chris King Classic hub is super easy. Here's my short write up.

Image

1. Use a 5mm allen wrench to remove the drop out cap on the non drive side. This shouldn't be very tight. (Far left on the photo above)
2. Insert 5mm allen wrench into drive side of axle. Use the tips of needle nose pliers to hold the axle cap (2nd part from left) on the non drive side.
3. Use 5mm allen wrench on drive side to loosen axle cap. It should not be very tight. Be careful to not mar the axle cap.
4. Spin off the axle cap with your hands once it is loose.
5. Firmly pull the axle out of the hub by the drive side.
6. Clean up the grease on the ring drive, inside and out. Clean up the mess inside of the hub. Relube the ring gear teeth using King's ring drive lube (or other lube if you choose). Run a small bead of the lube around the bearing areas with your finger. I used WD40 as the solvent as I did not want a bunch of degreaser washing around in my bearings.
7. Reassemble opposite of removal. Tighten the axle cap just enough to take up the play in the axle.

This is the inside of the hub:

This is the lube CK suggests. The bottle should be enough for like 10-15 uses. http://lmgtfy.com/?q=chris+king+lube

Total time was about 20 minutes to do the service. Stupid easy.
