Does anyone have any tips for oiling and storing your Olympic bar?

I've been using WD-40 and storing it upright, but the bar has lost some of it's spin.

How to make a $50 bar turn like a $400 bar. Well, maybe not exactly like a $400 dollar bar....but it's amazing what a $4 can of aerosol moly lube will do for a cheapo bar. Every 2 months, take the sleeves off, clean with mean green, reapply moly lube, and put the sleeves back on. I've lifted on a York and a Chapman. The lubed up cheapo bar doesn't turn as well, but I promise you, it doesn't turn $250 worse. From BrettPlatt on the Old School Strength Board.

Hope that helps....

How the heck do you remove the sleeves? That sounds like it really help. My bar is an Elieko, so it's not bad.
