    A common result of using oil or WD-40 is making the cables turn brown. Can’t remember the stuff I used last, but got it from a bicycle shop. Anything similar to this. There are lots. Mine was a white liquid that dries to powder.

    Royal Purple makes a product called Synfilm...a synthetic lubricant. My experience has been quite good with it. I've used it on my fishing gear, guns and cables with good effect.

    Probably with the tool made specifically for that, but I don’t have one. I just remove the cables from the levers and slowly drip it in until it runs out the bottom. I use a liquid lubricant that dries to a dry powder. 58K on my stock cables.
