lube throttle cables?

How do I go about lubing the throttle cables? Someone suggested getting a

cable lube attachment tool but not sure how this works or what to lube with.

Thanks.

Do you remove the cables from the grip or lube from carb end up?

I remove the cables from the carb. i hate trying to get em back into the grooves inside the throttle mechanism. it is easy to do if ya just happen to have the tank and seat off!!!

Take of the boots from the throttle so that you can see when the lube has gone all the way through. also hold a rag around the luber otherwise lube will be everywhere!!!

oh yeah and twist the throttle while lubing to aid the lube in working its way through the cable.

a lubed cable is a happy cable!!

and when ya put em back on the carb be sure to check for adequate throttle freeplay

I saw a tip somewhere about using a hyperdermic needle and slipping in down along side of cable and casing after taking off control . I tried it on my old sl350 and worked great ! I lost the cable oiler I bought . I would do it again in a heartbeat. Plus you can put your choice of oil down there.
