Re: "oiling" HD throttle cables
I used to "oil" the cables on my GT-750 regularly. But the BMW cables have teflon coating on the inner cable and oil will mess that up.
My Suzuki did not have that coating and needed regular oiling. I used a thing that looked like a syringe only instead of a needle fitting on the end it was open. There were split rubber bushes that would go over the outer cable sheath and then insert into the syringe. A hose clamp would sort of seal the damn thing and then you could squirt the oil into the cable. I think I got it from a J. C. Whitney's Catalog.
But this is what most people are using today.
