Question about 2008 Suzuki GSX-R 600
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Appreciate the direct "Ask Me".
To your concern, I am assuming you are referring to the plastic insert/tube over the cable. The plastic serves two purposes; 1st to ensure that the cable does not rub against the metal ends of the cable housing and 2nd, to reduce built-up of corrosion/oxidation on the cable. This is because of different types of metals are in contact with one another and are exposed to the elements. Simply put, the plastic serves as a sacrificial material, rather it be damaged than the cable.
There are also plastic inserts in some models over the nipple, the end of the cable. This serves as a spacer when the nipple is inserted on the slot/hole of the clutch lever.
I am also curious why your bike will not start and could only think of the clutch engaged switch. Pls check if the new clutch lever is reaching/engaging this switch. Although this of course does not have an effect as long as you start in neutral. Any other indicators when you press on the START button? A clicking sound?
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.
