I just lubed my thottle cables today. Those actually worry me a lot more because 1-they are much thinner, 2-i had one break on my speedmaster close to the miles i now have on the bird, and 3-as much as the cables i worry about that horribly pathetic throttle triumph saw fit to but on a $13-15k bike. So far a couple people at the other forum reported breakage and today when lubing them i checked the plastic keepers of the balls and they are so flimsy it's hard to imagine they could even last as long as the have !

Does anyone know of a grip set that includes the throttle sleve and the keepers are metal?
