Great video! Thanks for posting it. Somehow in reading the directions to do the same the beginning part of loosening the cable conduit and having it come off was beyond me. Now I intend on going home to give this a shot.

Nicely done Joseph. I do the same up to putting that fitting onto the cable. Where I differ is that I 'dribble' WD40 (are we surprised...?) into the end, while pulling/ pushing the cable inner back-and-forth till the WD40 comes out the bottom. Goes quickly like yours.

I got so p***ed off with the cable-lube you used, the first (ONLY!) time I tried to do a cable, lube EVERYWHERE (!!!) that I just fired it into the garbage.

Know what you mean. The first time was messy then the next time i made sure i pushed the lubing tool as far as possible down the cable housing and all went well. Motion Pro sell a lubing tool. The one i used i picked up at cycle gear it came as a kit with the tool and lube.

Thanks Guys, It super easy but alot of guys including myself when it comes to somethings working on the bike can be intimidating. I got up the nerve to change my own plugs from a thread here on the forum that someone took the time to give step by step directions and supplied photos of the process.

Nice vid. Very detailed.

I prefer liquid graphite instead of the traditional lube+cable luber:

Why are you thinking of replacing it? What don't you like about it? Is the leather holding up okay after being in the sun and weather?

I can't tell if the one you linked swivels with the lean of the motorcycle and can't find any reviews.

The leather is fine. But where the cup holder attaches to the mount is alittle bent out of shape so it doesn't swivel as well as it should. You can put a 20oz bottle in it if you take out the liner and a large McDonalds cup will fit but useless for anything larger. Also looking at these i know they swivel...http://www.gpscity.com/search/q=motorcycle+cup+holders
