    Looking for a cable lubing walkthrough..

    I know I need to do it, but haven't got a clue. I did the did search for it here and on google and came up empty, didn't see a sticky either. If someone could point me in the right direction I'd appreciate it.

    Thanks!

    The owners manual says...

    "Lubricate all cables such as the throttle, choke, and steering cables."

    "Use a Yamaha Power Cable Luber and Yamaha Lube-Zail to pressure lubricate the cables and purge out any moisture between the inner and outer cables."

    You may find a motorcycle parts supplier can help. I have one of these from years back which I use for my motorcycles. They consist of a tube with a plunger that you fill with oil (I use multigrade motor oil), put the cable in the holder, then pump away! If you can't find one, make a funnel of strong card and seal it onto the end of the cable, hang the cable from the workshop ceiling, and pour oil into the funnel. Leave for a couple of days, and it should have soaked its way down the cable. If you do the latter, you may need to thin the oil with WD40 or similar. It's amazing how easy the cables feel after a yearly lube!. Hope this helps. Cheers, Dave.
