    What kind of lub do you guys and gals use for cables, (throttle, brake cluch etc.) or does it matter.

    WD40 on my bike. Don't think you can hurt anything with it.

    I read once about using chain lube, big mistake. I couldn't twist the throttle afterwards. I had to flush every thing down with wd40 until the throttle cables started moving freely again.

    Tri-Flow with Teflon. One of the best multi use lubes on the market! Bicycle shops, Wally World,sporting good stores carry it.
