    just to let anyone who has snaped a clutch cable

    I was out riding last night and my clutch cable snapped so first thing this morning i head down to holeshot to find a new one.
    Well 1994 is vintage so they don't have any in stock so it will be tuesday or wednesday before i would see it.
    So i think hey maybe bent bike in langley would have a used one
    nope, no used cables there either but the guy there says he can make them now.
    So if you bust a cable take in your cable both parts and they can make you one in under half an hour cost me 30 bucks and i am back on the road now not in 5 days from now

    And don't forget to lube the cable every so often!

    problem is, we wouldn't trust your soldering, or end crimping. you'd probably try to add wheel weights to the thing.

    honestly, i'd probably just not ride for a while..and wait while a dealership orders the part...30 bucks for a repaired clutch cable or 30 bucks for a new clutch cable...

    but i guess if you really really really had to ride RIGHT NOW...then it's a good option

    I busted mine on my rebel, went to a honda dealer and they had it in the back, mine was an 82...a little more vintage than your 94

    had it fixed myself in the same day

    $30?? last one I bought was double that, and I still think it's a Chinese knock off.
    I put a $17. Canadian tire starter solenoid on my bike this weekend because no one had the $70 proper one, and none of the other brands would sell me something that was close.
