  • What do you use to lube clutch and accelerator cables?

    Hi all, for the best result, what do you use to lube clutch and accelerator cables? I mean what lube? Can suggest and share your experience? I used to use coconut oil, but I think it attract more dirt. Thanks.

      Coconut oil will solidify at cold temperatures and will also attract ants; so avoid it. A light motor oil like 10w30 can be used - to make the oil go in you can make a 'funnel' with triangular piece of plastic sheet and a rubberband.

      First find out whether the cable actually needs to be lubed. Those cables with a white teflon sleeve should NOT be lubed.

        Like Ashwanth said if there is a white sleeve, then it is self lubricate no need to apply any extra lubrication. If it is not present then you can use the stitching machine oil. the reason is it has very less viscosity and can penetrate to the full length and if that is not available then you can use WD40 also.

          Motul chain spray and cleaner, squeezed the pipe attachment that comes with it to fit the cable openings

            Cables should not be lubed. If its tight replace it. Adding lube with attract dust and sand causing cable failure

              Use standard oil for your model. I mean you shouldn't use other types so that the age of your vehicle will longer
