Also, WD40 isn't really any good for lubing cables at all.

Your far better off with a Teflon or Wax based lube, Finnish Line make some great products for cables, but as above, if its binding, its shagged.

The best stuff I found to use is this, Wurth HHS 2000. Its about $30 to $35 a can. lasts for ages, can use on motorbike cables too.
