Now the cable can be 'aimed' more toward the lever.
Tom, I re-routed my clutch cable today on one of the bikes with the 90 degree steel cable L. I like it! Like you say, I have a straight pull on the cable now. I never liked the way it ran through that spring, wedged in the motor fins. I think I will order some more of the cable L's. and do the other two bikes. Great idea!
