There’s nothing more frustrating than tipping your bike over in a corner, digging your throttle into the dirt, and then having your throttle become practically useless due to all of the dirt that had managed to enter your throttle tube. As a result, the throttle won’t return freely, and now you have to do some maintenance to get your steed back into tip top shape.

Cleaning and greasing your throttle tube is an easy maintenance job for some, but for the not so mechanically inclined, the task can seem daunting. Fear not, though, because Sean Trihey, mechanic for the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/KTM, shows us that this job is quite simple, and goes over this process step-by-step in this week’s How To, presented by Lucas Oil.

Tools Needed:
8mm T-Handle
Lucas Oil Red ‘N’ Tacky Grease
