Clutch cable failure

Recommended Posts

Check the part number 2PP-26335-02.  The -02 is the new revised version.  And when you look at the cable, the upper end that goes into the clutch perch should have a smooth curve.

Does anyone know how to be sure I'm getting the updated cable? I ordered a spare when I read about the failures, now when I go out and look at my spare, it's identical to the original in the bike. It seems like it'd be a good idea to use the updated version while taking the time to replace it.

What year bike do you own? If you have a 2017 or newer you have the updated cable. If you have a 2015 of 2016, you want to order part number 2PP-26335-02.

Make sure you get the old cable back to carry with you in case the new cable fails!

...or carry just the steel cable kit, similar to this. Reuse the outer tube... seems too convenient to ignore. Some assembly required. 😁

That part number will be useful when I ask the dealer to order, otherwise GK what I'll end up with!   Many thanks...

The part number ends in “2” rather than “1”

Just ordered the new clutch cable assembly to be fitted at the bike's first 1000km service in a week or two's time - cost is AUD $37.96.   Better safe than sorry!

Great idea, better safe than sorry. I was sure glad I was in my garage fiddling with it when it snapped. That could be really dangerous if it let go at the wrong time. Mine gave me a hint it had problems, but I now wish I'd just changed it sooner. I didn't realize I'd gotten the old cable initially as a replacement, but this forum helped me to figure it out and that thing is history.
