    I don't generally like oiling them since that tends to collect dust and dirt. It may be adjusted too tight or routed incorrectly?

    How much slack do you have? I've read a lot of comments elsewhere about the cables having too much slack in them. I thought the same thing until adjusting as much out with the adjusters near the throttle housing...they would bind every time I took slack out of them. Loosen up the cables & see if that fixes things.

    Make sure your bar end mirror isn't binding.
