Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

In Canada it is got to be cold, then I would suggest beside bigger return spring if it is like my Briggs Bike, use stuff that does not get thick as it get colder. Graphite Powder, not liquid.

I put a small amount in a cloth and pull the cable out of the cover through the cloth while cusping the cloth with powder around the cable. It is a messy job and don't breath the dust. Maybe wear gloves.

I use big wide arc bends for cables. Some say it has more surface area and therefore more friction, but there is a happy median and too tight an arc bend and cables don't move good.
