If i remeber right your are not suppose to lube them because they have a teflon coating inside.I have a barnett clutch cable and they said no to lube the cable and to just put alittle grease on the exposed cable
Makes sense, just replaced the cable with an OEM (no choice, had to get it back on the road quick) and the one thing I notice besides the clean teflon is how smooth the clutch was now compared to when I bought the bike from the prev owner. The clutch has always been a little jerky and I thought and had remembered reading reviews stating the same so blew it off. I think now it may have been deposits building up from being lubed. When I pulled the old cable out of the housing it was apparent it had been lubed at one point or another. I did notice some slight burring on the handle which could have been the culprit. Quick smoothing took the rough edge off but will monitor.
Regardless, I had been aiming to pick up a SavUrRide cable once I had the time to measure this one (03V92TC) for emergancy sakes. Of course, day late and 113.79 dollars short.
One thing thats ironic and maybe off topic but when I read the thread "how to really feel stupid" about folks fessing up that operationaly checked their bikes in a horizontal position, 3 days later I stepped on some acorns as soon as I stood my bike off the kick stand and almost went over. Is it a coincidence I read this thread about 5 days ago and now had a broken clutch cable.. lol
I have to laugh or it hurts... Thanks for all the gouge folks!!!!
