Also, based on my experience I advise against replacing the lube on titanium threads more often than absolutely necessary; the titanium granules shaved off during the break-in process seem to act as a rolling agent that improves the lube's functionality, provided the lube can keep them suspended and prevent them from re-galling to the threads again. So don't clean and relube the threads just because the lube turns dark. It's not motor oil, it doesn't have to be changed every 6 months.
