Lubricating the clutch cable

How often do ya'll lubricate the clutch cable on your KLR's? And, what do you use to lubricate it? Mine hasn't had any problems, just wondering where lubricating my clutch cable should be in my maintenence schedule. Appreciate the info. Thanks guys!

I lube cables about once a year. If you have one of the cable lube tools it makes quick work with your favorite spray on lube. Just don't use the lithium grease spray, it tends to get sticky in cool weather.

I have that on my parts list to get this week. I have had the klr for just over a year and roughly 4100 miles and it is time to get that done. I am going to go over the fluids again and check the valves also.
