Don't know if it's the hills or just a yearly fix but for the 3rd year in a row that my clutch cable has let go on my trip to the MT's. I only get up there 2 times a year so I want to make the most of the trip. 1st time I parked the bike, 2nd had some rig with a screw 3rd no worries. I have got pretty good about making a road fix to get home but this time I did not let it spoil the fun. Had 2 full day left when it broke and rode with this fix - no problem. Held like a champ. I wonder if there is anything stronger than stock? I'll let the pix do the talking - I added the TY strap to hold the vice grips back and keep the cable in the stock slot. Ouch - that looks like another broken clutch cable!
