    Ordered one today from sales@cyclebrakes.com
    Eddie responded very fast!
    $39.60 plus shipping

    I used the part number from this thread, part number 101-37-10610

    They can take a phone order or order via email and they can paypal you a invoice!

    1-800-805-2118

    That part number doesn't show up in the barnett catalog, so Eddie had to call it in to Barnett.

    i love my Barnett cable but wish it was stock length. It works fine but sticks up in the way of the view of the computer.

    Y'all must be putting some really tall bars on there...my stockers already seem tall/wide compared to what i am used to!

    Try routing the cable in front of the Head Tube...it may need to be longer to make that route but another member has his that way but iirc his is 4" longer than stock...

    I called Halls Cycle. Had it in a week...under $40. It's a REAL substantial cable.

    10-4. It is a pleasure to occasionally run across a quality product. Barnett cables are the real deal. With this cable I continuously wonder: Why would anyone want a hydraulic clutch?

    The length was very helpful to me! I´m trying to buy a universal wire for my machine, it chewed the original to shreds after about 3 000 km. A bit annoying with the current delivery times at the italian factory... I´ve been waiting for 7 weeks and I´ve had enough now.

    Wrong thread, but the foldable mirrors from the te 250/450 are great! Love them!

    Another thread reviving post here.

    Does this problem persist with the 2008 models? I'm picking mine up either this week or next and from what I've been reading this is a "must-do" mod.

    thanks

    I don't think it's really a "must-do" mod. I've had my Barnett cable since last summer & haven't put it on yet. A lot of people get their bikes with poorly routed cables and the clutch cable will fray and break from the severe bend at the bottom if it's not routed properly.

    I'll be sure then to check the routing on mine when I get it. From the pic of the pre-'08 stock cable I see why it happens. I assume the 08 is no different.

    The '08 610 I did my test ride on really had a hard clutch pull from what I am used to on my hydraulic KTM's, and even the old LC4 was easier. I assumed it was just the clutch springs, but maybe the cable too I guess. For the money I'm sure I'll do like Hoder and get the Barnett cable just to have on hand. Sure wish it was hydraulic. I've grown to really like them.

    My Barnett cable broke at the lever today after about 1.5 years! Any one else have a problem?

    Replaced my old XR600 cable every 5-8 years.

    I've read a few reports of the lever ball coming off. There was nothing wrong with the OEM cable on mine but after so many stories of the stocker breaking I put the Barnett on. Now I'm wondering if that was such a good idea.

    Just to let you guys know my buddy and I have had 4.5" longer than stock Barnett cables on our 2007 TE610s for 17 months now and 10,000. miles each. No issues at all. Much smoother than stock and we re-routed ours around the front of the steering head the traditional way with the longer cable.:1drink

    For peace of mind you could route the old stocker next to the Barnett at your next maintenance day. When one breaks, switch to the other and keep going. Buy a new one when you get home instead of trying to solve it in the woods.

    Better than nothing but I have to remove the air box to install the cable at the bottom. Perhaps I should weld up a dual housing holder at the bottom and have the backup pre installed. I just rode without a clutch back to the truck.
