Hello, no not yet, Where did it break? I always put a drop of oil on the "ball" at the lever end, It needs to pivot in the lever and not flex back and forth. Have fun, mtrude
Ordered the "premium" throttle & clutch cables from CMW. Any other "weak links" I should keep a lookout for?
Dont these things come with a spare clutch and front brake cable in the tool box? At least thats what my owners manual says, spare tube too. I got my 2005 used with nothing. I hope the spare cables aren't needed often.
Just as precaution I would check the clutch cable now, maybe you can catch it before it breaks too.
You have to wonder, in this century should this be happening? I don't know about you guys, but Most of the other bikes I have owned went their whole lives without these failures.
QuoteJust as precaution I would check the clutch cable now, maybe you can catch it before it breaks too.Yes; I'm replacing them as a pair. They are both of the same "vintage" (2006!? 5600 miles!?)QuoteYou have to wonder, in this century should this be happening? I don't know about you guys, but Most of the other bikes I have owned went their whole lives without these failures.The thought's crossed my mind on more than one occasion.
was there any warning?You know, they usually give some warning, gritty feel etc. Or did the end just pull off? The fella with the throttle cable failure really blows my mind, I mean it has a nothing job to do and it broke? and at low miles?
4000 miles seems more like what should be expected. DId you occasionally lube your cables?
