Thanks for that VJ and Jon. I agree, it should be pinned. This is a great tutorial for Mags as he has never seen or worked with anything like this before. :)

That is pretty freaking awesome! I learned something and I've been using parts fiches for over 40 years. When I was 12 I looked up parts for my Dad in the hanger. As an adult and a mechanic I looked up my own parts because I could do faster than the parts guys.

WitchDoctors IS freaking awesome! Are they cool in person as well? I'd stop by but the chances of me ever getting to Ohio are pretty slim.

Hey Jon...now help us out with a clutch cable assembly replacement video. I bought a Barnett from you and have some concerns about installing it.

That's what I thought. The darn thing is almost full and I don't have a 5 gallon container to siphon the gas into.

Ric- whats your concerns and I'll try and do a video.
I'm thinking that once I remove the tank, it will be obvious what to do, but are there any "gotchas" I need to be aware of? Other than correctly adjusting the cable.

I found removing the outer cowling and loosening the inner cowling bolts made it go much easier.

Thanks...I think.:eek
I wrestled with routing the cable for about 2 hours before deciding to waste 20 minutes getting stuff out of the way. The first time I changed the clutch cable I just muscled it in. It was routed poorly because I really couldn't see or route it properly. It interfered with the throttle cables necessitating a do over.

Jon, want to see the photos of my nipple repair? I couldn't stand the thought of spending $300 to $400 to replace the assembly, when a little ingenuity would suffice. :)

What I did made it a lot stiffer.
