So I mostly followed the procedure from this past post.

http://www.harley-davidsonforums.com/forums/general-service-repair/13130-clutch-cable-service.html

I removed the cable from the hand lever before I did the primary fluid change, rigged it and fed it oil. By the time I was done on the primary, the cable was oiled. But. A little oil dripped from the adjuster coupling, so I was wondering if anyone else had the issue too. Next time I will wrap it with elec tape so it doesn’t drip out.
One other thing, I didn’t have any special oil so I used 3in1 oil. Is that going to cause a problem with the tranny?

Oiling the cable was never easier, thanks Dave and company.

You should be fine with whatever oil you used. Some people use WD 40

So little of it is in the cable it doesn't change much really. It makes the clutch feel so good though...I might do mine sometime, it is getting a little mushier. It is a pretty long lasting fix though.
