Hydraulic oiler - around £20

OILING AND ADUSTING your bike's cables can make for a smoother, more responsive riding experience.

Over time, the grease put into the cable housing during the manufacturing process will degrade, leaving your bike's throttle or clutch action impaired.

So it's worth splashing out around £20 for a dedicated hydraulic cable oiler.

Check the video for how to use the oiler.

While oiling your cables, adjust them to take out any unwanted slack. This will give a better response.
