    I watched the video on how to adjust you clutch and wondered what he was using for cable lube that didnt require the lube tool. Anyone have a favorite they would like to share?
    Thanks in advance

    I use aerosol chain lube on my cables, just put the straw in the end of the housing and fire away.

    Is WD-40 acceptable?

    WD-40 is ok to free up a sticky cable but it evaporates in very short order. You need to use something that won't disappear in a few days.:s
