Somethings funky with my clutch. When I squeeze the lever there is a lot more resistance than usual, and a squeaking noise is coming from where the cable connects to the ...(ah, what is it that it connects to?).

Seems like it needs a lubin'

How does one go about lubing a clutch cable and making sure everythings cool where it connects? (Hmm, must have something to do with that rubber boot that covers that little lubing nipple) ;D

Obviously, I need a good shop manual or other resource for general monster maintanence. Any recommendations?

Thanks

Okay, I won't lube it. But can I still reach down and tweak it from time to time? ;D

Hummmm-baba ;)

Yeah, I checked the fluid and its fine.

This morning I squeezed the lever before starting her up and everything felt normal. Once I get going it seems to go through a period of being resistant, and then it clears up and is fine for the rest of the day. I think it may be the slave cylinder as Howie mentioned. I've considered replacing it in the past due to the stiff feel of the stock slave.

Any opinions on Evoluzione? Seems like a good one.
