Slight fever ;) I have three stradic 2500fh and they all need to be cleaned and oiled. One is not so free turning anymore, a little squirt of oil helped a bit. These need to be tore down, cleaned and oiled this winter. I used to go the guy on sheridan years ago but dont know where to go now.

Theres an appliance/lawn mower/equipment rental & repair shop across from Wheat Ridge Cyclery. Ive been in there a couple times and the have a lot of small, old things laying around that are for sale and refurbished. I bet they could help you out.

Don't be scared......

Here's a quick cleaning and oiling guide from the Shimano website.

http://fish.shimano.com/publish/content/global_fish/en/us/index/customer_service0/reel_maintenance_instructions.download.-mainParsys-000100-downloadFile.html/Maintenance%20Tips-%20Spinning%20Reels%20(1%20page).pdf

This is about as far as I would go IMO, I would send the reel in to shimano for more detailed repair work.

I used Gary last spring to repair and clean a reel and I was very happy with his work. I would recommend him for sure.

Spinning reels are easy. There's a handful of parts inside but nothing is complicated and slaps back together pretty easy. Maybe give it a try on a cheap reel first.
