I'm having a go at replacing my cassette, and have just taken the old one off ready for when the new one arrives.
Is it advisable to apply any kind of lube over where the new cassette slides onto. or best left dry?

id take off the free hub and give it a good clean first ;)

Cassette change didn't go as planned. As careful as I was to slide out the plastic packaging cylinder in the new one, I slipped and the cogs & spacers went everywhere. Exactly what I didn't want to happen!!

Well, the good news is that they will only fit on the freehub one way! Wasn't the retaining screw secure?

I usually put a thin coating of copper grease on the freehub body before sliding the cassette on.

I didn't even notice one to be fair.
Is it possible to fit sprockets back to front, e.g. the outer face facing inwards??

the key system on the freehub body means you can not put them on the wrong way round mine are one complete piece and all pinned together but will only fit on a xd driver.
