Throttle cable lubrication

Anyone know if there is a way to lube the throttle cables without removing the tank and air box to get to the throttle bodies?

The clutch cable is a cinch, but the throttle cable definitely needs attention.

It's a 2001 929.

Re: Throttle cable lubrication

I think you'll just have to do it the right way. Sorry 'bout that.

I have one of these and it will work on the throttle. The reason you haven't used it on your throttle is probably the same reason I haven't: tearing my bike apart.

Re: Throttle cable lubrication

Perhaps take the opportunity to catch up on all the other maintenance items you've avoided for the same reason then?
