Default Re: clutch cable PLEASE HELP!!

If you could post some pics it might help. Show us the cable and the clutch arm, maybe we can see something you don't. All I can go on is the pic from your album.. Not a great angle for what we're talking about. From looking at that pic though, I have to ask if the cable rubs or makes contact with anything, including the bottom of your carb? (FYI, I'm running the same carb on 2 of 3 builds).

You said you can hear the replacement cable breaking.. can you determine where the sound is coming from? Is it at the handle, mid-cable, etc? Often the notch in the clutch handle has forming waste around where the cable hooks into it. That waste material can be really hard on the cable as well.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
