I understand that IGUS were specifically designed to operate self-lubriciously, and that just introducing contaminants would be bad... Practically, I've had enough experience shooting stuff that was written with the same intent of being self-lubricating that doesn't work out, so I've just begun slapping extra lubricant (and cleaning surfaces) in everything and so far actually result in better overall results, regardless of what the instructions are meant to be. Even yes, greaseless bearings, they still actually work better fed thin lubricant over time (again, dry environments here change that). I think Andrew's point is that you end up with more effective life out of the things running them counter to the provided directions, and they are wear items anyway.
