DMR V6 Cheap Plastic Pedals, adding an oil port.

I got a pair of inexpensive, but good DMR V6 pedals. They were a bit stiff due to having bushes not bearings, so I drilled a small hole in the side of the plastic axle. Then I pumped in some oil from a oil bottle until the oil leaked from the top and bottom of the axle. I then filled the holes with a blob of silicon.

I can easily remove the silicon and add more oil when needed or add a grub screw.

You'll have to keep on top of it, can't think they will last long running on oil.

They should already have a grub screw. If not you could add one if you have the tools

and you should add grease (not oil) using a syringe
Thanks for your advice, but the inexpensive DMR V6 pedals don't already have a grub screw and with regular oiling they will be fine, I'll just oil them when I'm oiling the chain....................

I'll give an update in a year...............

Get a syringe and inject them with grease.
