you can take it apart the mechanism itself, and clean and lube....but it's likely the cable that needs replacing.

When I cleaned the throttle on my '77 it took care of all the stiffness. There was about 35 years of sand and grease mixed together.

Removed the Shifter. The Shifter is smooth. The cables are smooth when operated by hand. I'll clean and lube everything and re-assemble. Maybe, I'm missing something.

Just remember, it's all in the wrist action when your lubing

Yes, a smooth, steady hand is important.
