Yea - It had to brake when I was out in the middle of nowhere....and I had to shift without a clutch to get home. It went fairly smooth. I've changed lots of clutch cables here and there, but is this one hard to get to? My Clymer manual makes it sound as easy as other bikes, but I'm guessing it's not. I'm waiting on the cable in the mail. Is there anything (tip or trick) I should know about?:baffled:



Thanks!!

Patience. Oh young bike dude.

If you haven't received a response, two things come to mind: 1. Everyone is out riding or eating their supper or2. theyjust haven't got back to ya.

These folks will help you but sometimes on a weekend they are busy.

Hope you find a solution soon. Besides, you don't have the part yet.:byebye:

I'd always just used duct tape and pulled the new cable in while pulling the old one out.

Yea - I'm impatient, but I am 50 and've been ridin' for 35 years.....I get upset when any of my bikes isn't on the road....turned out it was nearly as easy as a typical bike. A little harder to see though. The cable came in the mail this afternoon and was sittin' at the front door.

It's in! It's done.

I've taped the old and new cable ends together and pulled them through. Sometimes they will get stuck and you have to wiggle them through the gap.
