Except for the new teflon sleeved cables, they need to be lubricated. They'll work dry for a long time but will eventually bind up and fail, not to mention they're easier to squeeze when lubed.SVSCanuck said:I agree...WD-40 is not a particularly good lubricant. It is a great solvent and water displacer.
I'm just wondering whether cables really need a lubricant, or do they just need to be kept clean to keep the internal friction low.
Actually I sas pulling the guys leg - there was a whole thread on the mailing list about lubed brake cables a while bag...calvoracer said:I am sure he meant throttle cables... didn't you chazmox? :wink:
