Anybody ever have a problem with your clutch cable mine broke with only 25,000 miles
Anybody ever have a problem with your clutch cable mine broke with only 25 000...
Broke at 12
Replaced mine at 10k before it had a chance to leave me stranded
Yup. I took the little metal sleeve off of the lever side and havent had any issues. Went through two OEM cables that both snapped at the lever
68000 ks..made it 20 ks home with only 2 threads of wire holding..just..
Always have a spare cable with you.....
Good advise Dave C. I picked one up for less than $30 at my local Kaw dealer. Cheap insurance.
Mine groans a little bit and its aftermarket. I've been ignoring it since I've never experienced a break. Clearly from experience here I should lube it up. Thanks guys.
There's a tool you can buy that mounts to your cable at the lever that allows you to put the plastic tube from a lubrication can, WD-40, Cable Lube, JB-80, whatever you like to use, and spray until it comes out the bottom and you're done. Wish I would have done that sooner. I also got a cable from JP Cycles, just 20 minutes away from me, for $23.00+tax.
It's well talked about that the stock clutch cables seem to break. A lot of us have gone with aftermarket cables. They seem to be much better.
That little tool... I know the one.. I never seem to get that thing to work right..
