For thinning grease I use CorrosionX - I only really do this for small spinners where the grease maybe too thick
For TSI321 I thin with IPA (Isopropryl Alcohol 99% pure it doesn't attack plastics like some solvents) - 4 or 5 parts IPA to 1 part TSI321 - I only do this for spool bearings on a casting reel - otherwise I use it neat. It's also excellent on tool joints like pliers/cutters etc. Hope that helps - Chris.

IPA, Exactly what i was looking for!
Thanks.

FYI:
I bought these to cut TSI 321 with IPA,

the mix works well in just about everything, I am very impressed with it TSI.

I think the best lubricant is grease that has NLGI of 00 ( EP is even better )
that is the perfect viscosity with which you can fill up the reel and it does it all


Old post , I know but , you might like Maxima 80916. I've been using it with excellent results. Under $8 and it's blue.

I'm a bass angler.

How about using Triple-guard or 2-4-C on drive gear and pinion of baitcast reels?

If it's for freshwater only I would go with TSI321 on everything (cut the 321 with IPA for spool bearings)

On my small freshwater baitcasters I'm using TSI-321 on everything and it's working the best of anything I've tried.

Doesn't the IPA evaporate and stop diluting?

Yes, it evaporates and leaves a lighter coating of TSI on the bearings.

Yes, it evaporates and leaves a lighter coating of TSI on the bearings.

Also, the capillary action will be better for the thinner liquid to spread.
I going to apply a liberal amount to my honda ridgeline's rear diffy drain and fill bolts which are corroded frozen.
