Lube Your Motorcycle Cables the Cheap Way

Don't Forget the Cables!

One of the most overlooked maintenance items on a motorcycle is the cables. Cables can dry out, become brittle and break over time if not properly maintained. Sitting on the side of the road with a busted cable - not good! I recommend to folks that they lube their cables at least once a year in the spring. It's actually pretty simple and only takes a few minutes. Why would you pay the dealership $80.00 an hour to do it?

The video shows a simple way to do it yourself and with a few items that you probably have laying around your garage. (I've heard from a few riders that it's not good to oil the newer teflon cables though. Has anyone else heard this?)

Have you found any other simple ways to do this yourself?
