Lubricate new Stator and Balancers before install?

Guys,
I'm ordering all the parts today, gaskets, stator and pickup coils to replace the Stator, Balancers and pickup coil on my 04 Vulcan 750.

Do I need to lube the rubber balancers and Stator prior to installation and do I have to buy a special lubricant for this?

Thanks and sorry for all the newbie questions!

You could coat the damper bushings in motor oil or even soak them until ready to install, but the manual doesn't prescribe any pre-lube for either part that I recall.. I dipped the bushings right before installation. Everything gets doused or at least coated shortly after the engine starts.

Get the good stator!

You are to coat the dampers with assembly grease.

(it devolves into the motor oil safely, but provides the initial lubrication needed not to damage the rubber)

x2 on getting the good stator. OEM or a rewind by TPE are the only options imo.
