Clutch Cable Lubrication
« on: October 10, 2017, 10:38:16 PM »

So my old clutch cable broke leaving me stranded, and now I'm in the prossess of installing the new one, and I'm using this to lubricate it:

https://www.amazon.com/Cyclo-White-Grease-Lithium-Lubricant/dp/B003TTPKFE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1507620488&sr=8-1&keywords=cyclo+white+grease

It's quite thick and I don't know how far it went into the cable, now I'm thinking of cleaning it all off with WD40 and using engine oil instead.

My question is, if I used the WD40 say at 10 in the morning and put the engine oil at 4 in the afternoon, will the WD break up the oil or will it have dried already? Or should I just stay with the white grease and try to put more and see if I can get it to reach the end of the cable?

666,

You've had your bike well and truly long enough to justify a hydraulic setup!

I'll see if I can find links for some of the parts.

The only curly thing will be finding the right braided line, with the right angles of banjo fittings.

Brake and clutch lever set:

OR this would match the OEM look pretty closely:

Then you need to measure the length of the hose and get the correct fittings. Venhill do good quality hose and banjos that will seal properly and stay leak free.
