as wilth all moving/sliding objects/components...suffers from the effects of friction and contamination(if exposed to the atmosphere) some sort of cleaning and oiling may be required from time to time..

unless specified by the manufacturer of cables or bike that this is not required ( cables with nylon or teflon sleeves need not be oiled)..common sense tells u that this needs to be done on a regular basis..

 

i brought this subject up ..as this is the most neglected maintenance on our bikes...there are commercial equipment for this if u are interested...but i am trying to make a DIY cables oiler..

 

what i need now is a large syringe..ya those needle thingy used by doctors (without the needles..)...anyone knows where to get one..or kind enough to donate one..will be appreciated..

for your perusal..

 

 

 

Maintaining your motorcycle is an important job. Not only so that your bike will live a long life, but also so that it works at its optimum. Everyone knows the basic, really important tasks, like changing your oil, making sure your tires are in good condition, cleaning and oiling your chain, etc.

 

There is one very important maintenance task that a lot of people overlook. That's the process of maintaining your throttle, clutch and other control cables. Most people don't give much thought to the controls of their bike, but it is one of the most important parts of your bike, and well-maintained controls can make riding a lot more fun. On the other side, neglected controls can be downright dangerous, or leave you stranded with a broken cable.

 

Doing the work to maintain your controls and cables is pretty simple work; it just takes a small investment in time, and a little familiarity with some easy procedures. The frequency of maintenance will vary depending on the type of riding you do, what kind of bike you have, and what sort of conditions you ride in. A dirt bike that gets ridden hard in dirty or muddy conditions will need much more maintenance than a street bike that just gets ridden on sunny weekend days. A good rule of thumb is to at least start the riding season with a good maintenance overhaul. Start with the cables, and then go from there. A street bike may only need this work once a season, a dirt bike may need it every other ride, or maybe every ride!

 

These procedures also apply to new replacement cables. Most replacement cables are sold without any lubrication, it is critical for their proper function and long service life that cables are properly lubricated.

 

Remove the Cables

First thing you have to do is remove the cables from your bike. Always refer to the factory service manual for your model motorcycle for these procedures. Getting any part of the disassembly or assembly wrong could result in a stuck throttle or a non-functioning clutch, both of which are extremely dangerous. You service manual will also have detailed specifications about cable adjustment and in some cases, proper cable slack, which is also critical to the proper and safe function of your motorcycle.

 

For all cables, the first thing to do is to clean up the housing, and inspect the cable for any wear. If the housing is worn to the coil winding, or one of the fittings is damaged or worn, this is a good time to think about some new cables. If they look good, the next step is to relubricate the inner wire.

 

Lubricating the Cable

Lubricating the wire inside the housing will make it slide more smoothly, and will also extend the life of the cable by reducing friction Motion Pro makes an excellent Cable Lube, and also a Cable Luber to make this job as easy as possible. The Cable Luber installs over the end of the housing, and clamps over the inner wire. There is a port in the side of the tool where you can insert the tube from the spray can of lube, and then short bursts of the aerosol will force lubricant into the cable housing and down along the inner wire. The lubricating process will also clean the inner wire and housing of debris. Continue to inject cable lube into the cable after the lube begins to drips out of the bottom of the housing. At first the discharge will be dirty, but when you see clean lubricant coming out you are done. Make sure to have some extra shop rags around though, because it is a somewhat messy process.

those using the offers of help...are responsible for their own wellbeing .ie damage to vehicles or personal injuries or to third party damages..those with reservation about this arrangement should refrain from paticipating in the DIY/repairs/ or whatever..

 

So boys and girls of all ages..good luck..

I think English is getting more and more complicated these days.

From what I read, my understanding is this:

 

1. Helpful people

2. Get into trouble

3. Be responsible and state safety clause

4. Don't damage 3rd party properties.

5. Boys and Girls take care.

 

Still I don't understand what you're trying to bring in the message.

Nevermind... ignore me.... I'll get a translator and phrase it.

 

Cheers!

I'm still wondering what you're trying to say.

Well, I said nevermind... I'll get it figured out somehow. Not important anyway.

Mep's post is entitled "Liability" Once you consider that, the rest of his post makes sense.

 

1. SBF and the organizers are not liability for any damage to your bike in the unfortunate event that it happens.

2. You are responsible for the consequences of any DIY that you make to your bike, even if it is offered by experienced bikers.

3. If you are uncomfortable about letting others make repairs on your bike, you can still come and learn from the experience of others before taking getting involved.

This is what I call simple English.

Straight to the point and easy to understand.

 

See... I knew somebody would translate it.

Thanks... Now I understand the message.

 

Cheers!

3. If you are uncomfortable about letting others make repairs on your bike, kindly refrain from participating.

 

In short..it's some sort of a parental consent form for participation.

Yap, organizers have to cover yourself, participants must know the liabilities.

 

Whatever happens, no one is to blame. You're responsible for your own actions.

 

PK and SBF will not be responsible for any damages caused.

 

Organizer is not representing PK or SBF for this event, but he is kind enuff to offer his place for such an event.

 

If anyone is not sure any repairs is 100% to go ahead, kindly go ahead to a proper bike shop to do repairs. Organizer or participants will not be responsible. However, if any participants involved know that you are not qualified to offer the correct advise on certain issues, kindly refrain from giving advice on issues you are not familiar with.

 

This is a learn and share knowledge event.

 

Gd luck for your event. I may just pop by.
