    My clutch cable broke going to work today, never had the problem it's a standard 66cc kit should I get a stronger cable or just the same ? probably If i buy one from a bicycle shop it might just be better quality.

    If it happens again going to work is there any "quick" way of fixing it or just have a spare cable in the bag ?

    a spare would be best, but you should really spend some time finding out why it broke

    breaking one is rare unless there is something wrong with how it is routed, or something wrong with clutch

    A bike brake cable.
    Depending on which end broke you could shorten the sheath.
    The clutch cables are too long on most bikes anyway.

    I had a bicycle brake cable so it sorted now. It broke where is it routed through the spacer at the engine I'm thinking that it needs a slight adjustment so now to have the cable rubbing I'll look at it in more detail tonight.
