Does the small actuator on the front master cylinder require lubing? I'm talking about the little plunger that fits inside the cup of the front brake lever... if so what type of lube? Thanks.

The Yamaha SCR service manual has 27 pages of periodic maintenance and the only thing it says about the front brake lever is this.

"Lubricate the pivoting point and metal-to-metal moving parts of the brake lever. (Silicone grease)"

The frequency chart shows every 4000 miles, or for you, 7000 km.
Or every 6 months.

I've always used Bel Ray waterproof grease on lever pivots.
That tiny spot might benefit from a bit of something less tacky, though.
Grit could accumulate and wear on things.
I'm partial to DuPont spray lubes with Teflon(tm).
The blue can of all-purpose is great on such parts.
Need something heavier? Try the yellow can of chain saver lube.
Just shake the ever living daylights out of the cans first. LOL

Cool, thanks for replies! Gotta get some teflon spray I guess... White lithium grease has always been my go-to for pivot points...
