Clutch Cable snapped :-(

So I haven't posted in this forum in a while since I joined the facebook group, but I'm trying to see if I can get back into it.

Last night after I finished work, I'm just about to head out of the parking garage when I felt a weird "Crunch" in my clutch lever. The first time, I figured it wasn't anything...until it happened the second time and I knew something was up. Any case, the clutch cable from the lever was actually fraying and basically, I was no longer able to change gears. I was able to put it into nutural and pushed it in a parking spot. Later that evening I went back to pick it up with a trailer. Pain in the ass. I called the two local dealers and the part isn't getting here until Friday :-(
Good news is, the part only cost 25$ Canadian (So, that's like 5 USD or something? :-P) Now, just waiting. From what I hear and saw online, changing the clutch cable isn't too hard.
Fun times!

It's pretty easy Changing the cable. Look into Glenn's clutch relief mod. It's makes the clutch up to 50 percent easier. I think that be is one of favorite mods besides the seat. Good luck

When you replace the new one I would inspect the lever and routing all the way down. Other than being exposed to harsh elements, the only other way cables fray is from rubbing. I would make sure that the cable wasn't coming in contact with anything it shouldn't. Look for grooves on any of the metallic parts close to where the cable frayed.

Thanks KRash, I didn't think of that. I'll take a look. I have aftermarket Levers, so maybe I did something I shouldn't have when installing.

I'll keep you guys posted.

Not only do I love the stock seat, also got used to the stock clutch (and am leaving it).

Alright! Got the cable on Friday and installed it. Very easy to do, so I was happy about that. I ended up playing with the adjustment a lot more and have it even better than it was before :-)
Back on the road like a champ!

Did you find any burrs, or otherwise identify what could have caused the old cable to snap?

I'm curious too. Almost looks like the cable took a hard corner at that location

Nope, couldn't find anything that could have caused it...I'm wondering if it's just bad luck on the cable? I have no idea.
Ill keep a closer eye on this cable and hopefully nothing happens :-)

THanks for the concern and interest guys :-) Makes me feel more like part of the fury family.
