Just got back from the garage where I just installed my clutch cable that I bought last year just before MAM 2011, and had been putting it off since I thought my current one was working just fine. Well, to make a long story short, WOW!!!!! WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!!! The clutch lever pops back much smoother and quicker than before. I can really feel the spring at the other end of the cable when I pull the lever. It is literally night and day!
I have about 16,000 miles on my old clutch cable (24,000 km) and I highly recommend changing it to anyone reading this. It makes my clutch feel new again!
Used the string trick and that worked great! Rerouted the cable using the path outside the engine mount as well (it was really wedged in there)
