My 2006 sixty 5 came with spare clutch, brake cable, tire tube as indicated in the manual. Had to use the clutch cable at 4000 miles.

4000 miles seems more like what should be expected.  DId you occasionally lube your cables?

I carry a spare clutch and throttle cable on all my bikes, including my Suzuki.  I also carry spark plugs and a spare headlight bulb.  (Had a headlight bulb blow one night on a dark country road whilst crossing the railroad tracks which just happen to be on a corner.  Was very interesting for a few moments, but suprisingly, I made it upright.)

That is an informative thread, Leonard.  Nice pictures too.  Too bad about the camera.

My 04 cable broke with on 1200 miles.  I bought the heavy doty cable out of the catalog but the transmission end was to big to fit in the clutch yoke so I used the supplied spare.  Keeping the cable lubed, the clutch adjusted and not sitting at a light with the clutch pulled in is everything with a Bullet!

My '99 broke the clutch cable at approx 3500 miles, I did some back of the envelope calculations and figured the original cable lasted 20,000 shifts.  The replacement Premium cable has lasted 9000 miles thus far which would be 50 or 60 thousand sifts.  I lubed the cable with 20W50 and lubed the cable ends with a light grease.
