Default So my clutch cable broke...

Was going to go for a ride yesterday and got about a mile away from the house before it happened. I guess I am glad it didn't wait until I was a hour or two away, or yesterday would have been a long day.

Anyway, I ordered a SAV-UR-Ride repair kit, as I thought that would be a quick and cheap temporary fix. What cables do you guys recommend.

I was able to get it back to the house fairly quickly and since I couldn't ride I decided to go play cards. I end up losing so I have to add that cost to the cable.

I would buy an extra sav-ur-ride and leave the first one on as your new permanent. Just saying.

Good idea. That way you he won't be stuck losing money again while being forced to play cards.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Actually I did buy two. I figured even if I decide to get a new cable I figure keeping one as a spare is probably a good idea. Of coarse it will never break if I have a spare on me.

Oh BTW I was going to order them from you but when I placed the order it said out of stock. So I ended up getting from a shop on EBay. After I ordered I found that Witchdoctor carried them as well and it would have been a bit cheaper.

take off clutch lever
Feed new wire through cable housing.
Attach at both ends.


The instructions are pretty easy to follow. You get everything you need except the tools.

The hardest part for me was getting the clutch lever lined back up and the pivot pin back in.

Also trimming the wire, I really didn't have a wire cutter big enough. So that took a few minutes.

Edit: Here is a PDF of the instructions

Save-Ur-Money and simply buy an emergency cable stop. Most breaks are at the lever, with the barrel end gone you now have the equivalent of a Save-UR-Ride in place without doing anything-all you need to do is put a cable stop on & adjust the cable length. They're cheap $3-$8 and take up almost no space. I have a couple of them in my both my bikes kits and so far only used one.

Thanks for the instructions. I carry a SavUrRide, but haven't had to use it yet. Will review the tools again. My first broken clutch cable, i had the bike towed due to my inexperience.
