Cables are usually a forgotten part that needs maintaining, at work we use hhs2000 wurth lubricant and spray it in the cables, if you have never done your cables then i reccomend pulling them off then hanging them up and spraying lubricant in them while moving the inner cable back and forth and then letting them hang overnight to make the lubricant travel in the cable liner. Basically when i service i will also lube all pivot points, such as rear brake lever, footpegs, stand, swinger bearings, wheel bearings, pivot sections on my levers, the caliper rubbers, shock and fork adjustment parts, and removing the rear master cylinder dust cover on the rod and spraying in where the circlip is and there is some others but you catch my drift.
