just a tip on cables, when i replaced mine i fitted a larger outer with a teflon liner in it and used a stainless solid wire. this has been a huge improvement on the old style. they move so easy now. they resist dirt build up and never need lubericating. cost was $40 to do both engines. you can also get the adjusters to suit the bigger style with the same size thread. i'm sure these will allow more precise braking. you can buy all the parts off the roll. ozzzie

a tip that was given to me by an old dealer was to lubricate brake and throttle cables with automatic transmission fluid! never freezes, and adds that little bit of lubrication to make things silky smooth.

Bicycle repair shops usually stock the cable housing with the plastic liner. Most larger hardware stores have the solid wire. Even stranded wire works better in the cable housings with the plastic liners, especially when they get a little older, and require less lubrication than the cheaper housings without the liner.
