Default Throttle/clutch cable coating & lubing

Anyone knows if the throttle and clutch cables on the newer Sportsters (2016 onwards) are TEFLON coated?

Would they need lubrication?

If so, what type of lubricant is compatible with teflon?

Thanks y'all

Modern cables are lined and/or coated and you don't lube them like used to be the norm. No lube.

Great info! I had not idea that they went to coating the cables. I thought that was awesome on my Bandit 1250, as Suzuki runs Teflon coating. I lubed my clutch cable in ignorance. Good to know.
