Default Canopy pins - do you lube them?

My canopy pins are a pretty tight fit and make a raspy noise moving either way thru the roll bar bushings. Is anybody lubricating theirs and with what? Thanks.

I polished mine with some mothers after my test fit .. no more noise .. took 10 minutes and no dirt-attracting grease to deal with.

No lube, but no problem either.

Polish them up and maybe coat them with a dry lube.
