Hey guys well i got my new clutch cable and break cable onto my bike and i need to cut the exceess cable and i was woundering is there a special way that will stop it flairing?? I have got the crimp things but thought if i just cut the wire with plyer it will fray and i woudent be able to get it in the crimp?
I had the same problem. I found that a dremel with a cutting wheel or thin grinding wheel
works good. Then I touched the end with a little solder to hold it together. It seems to be working great. Cheers.
I just use a sharp pair of wire cutters and snip it fast. Then I use a piece of shrink tubing on the end to prevent it from frailing.
Or I use one of those aluminum caps you slide over the end of the cable and crimp it on. You can get those at any bike shop.
thanks guys, iv done mine. i just heated the wire up and put some solder around it then cut it quickly. the clutch cable wasent the neetest but works and the rear break cable looks like a pro did it.
Cheers for all ur help guys.
