Agree with Fergy, I use regular brown bearing grease. Remove inner cable from sleeve, pull through rag with glob of grease on it, slide back into the sleeve, install, done. Annual greasing should help longevtiy of the cable.My stepson's cable broke 2 days ago. I ordered the cable yesterday from
my local dealership. $20.99 w/tax. I expected just to order the cable, that
was in two, on the inside of the cable. The microfiche looked like it would be
the outside black too. The bike has about 16,000 miles on it.
Okay, now to the lubrication question. What should I get? Chain lube? I
think WD40 is way too thin. And, should I just disconect the Tachometer
and spray, squirt what ever lube in there too?
