New Cables


Recommended Posts

Just put on a new throttle cable for the first time. Just wondering if people lube brand new cables or if they come pre-lubed or anything? It feels nice and smooth as it is, thought I'd ask though

Yeah, seems like there's two different opinions from what I've been reading - lube or no lube for cables. I've never had problems with my cables sticking so I've never lubed them, but I can see how it would be a good thing. What kind of lube would you recommend mihylo?

Forget all the fancy stuff and use the PB Blaster with the cable luber tool.

The PB is a Kero oil so it cleans, removes rust and junk and lubes.

I have used the actual cable lube product and it isn't bad. PB is way better.
