Lubing throttle cables - advice needed
 
Hey lads how are things?

I have lubed my clutch cable many times using the cable lube tool and cable spray lube.

Is there much to lubing the throttle cable?

Is it a case of lubing the 2 cables on the throttle tube or do you need to loosen cables at the carbs too?

Bike is a carbed cbf600.

Thanks

If you're using a spray lube you might be able to sneak nozzle of the can into the cable at the handlebar end without disconnecting the cable. If you can't get it in, unhook the cable from the grip and give her a spray

Open the 2 screws on the housing at throttle and squirt some lube down the jocks of the cables while twisting it back and forth.

This might be easier than unzipping the throttle tube :lbhbh:

Build the outer cable up with insulation tape until its diameter is larger than that of the nipple and the right size to fit whatever size hose you have knocking around over it. Put the hose over it, fill it with your favourite brand of dead dinosaur fat and either let it flow through of its own accord or blow it through if you're in a hurry.
I've been doing it like that since I was a mere sprog, and it works so well I should patent the fucker.

Is the tool you have the one that clamps onto the end of the cable?
It should work for the throttle cables too and I doubt you'll need to go near the carb end.
