Lubing Cables

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. I thought I'd just get your help on lubing my throttle cable and clutch cable. I just ordered the Applied cable luber tool and it didn't come with any instructions. My throttle cable seems to be a little sticky so I need some help. So how does this luber work and also what do you guys reccomend using for lubrication. Thanks

To be honest if your throttle cable is a bit sticky I'd get a new one. A throttle sticking open is extremely dangerous! Usually when a cable starts to stick it's because corrosion has started, which means the cable has started to degrade. Sometimes it's even degraded to the point where it begins fraying. Again a very dangerous situation for a throttle cable. A cable luber should be used as maintenance/preventative, not to try to fix a sticky throttle cable. Just bite the bullet and buy a new one...be safe!
