the cable & flower nut work together to give proper clutch action - both need attention for it to work correctly (note also that the distance between locked & unlocked position of the clutch lever determines how much grab is available to the clutch)

if using a brake cable, it will be too long in most cases, cutting outer is easy, but cutting inner requires that cable have solder applied, then the cut is made in the center of the soldered area to prevent to cable from unraveling - this is much harder than just buying a new cable and leaving it uncut
Sometimes I sets and thinks, sometimes I jes sets.
