Bought new OEM clutch cable for my Vulcan 500...Should I lube it before installing? If so, with what type of lubricant.
My cables are all teflon coated. i lube them anywy. wont hurt. In fact Barnett cables and clutches recommends lubing the cable before installationThanks for tips.....Service manager at dealer said the oem cable I bought was Teflon coated and so just installed it "dry" and it shifts as easy as a new bike....The one on the bike previously was new also, but not sure if OEM or aftermarket, but whatever, it must have been pinched somewhere... Big difference now. It was very difficult to pull in clutch before installing new cable....Nice to have such a distinct improvement.
Again thanks for tips.
