You can go to www.Searspartsdirect.com and put you units model number in and order the cable yourself. They can ship it right to your house and you can swap the cable yourself with just simple hand tools.

You can see the details on the idler attachment in the parts schematic when you are ordering your new cable.

Good luck and be careful!

Testimonial: "Instead of ordering a new cable I fixed the spring with broken hook by inserting a wood bushing in the spring, added a 3/8 in bolt and bracket to idle"

    Wow, that was a lot of work for a $15.00 part that takes about 10 minutes to change. ;-)

Why can I hardly pull my clutch lever in on my 2008-Victory 8-Ball motorcycle


It sounds to me like the inside of the clutch cable itself has broken strands that is making in bind up. Disconnect the cable at the motor (transmission) now see how difficult it is to squeeze the clutch lever on the handle bar. If it is easy to pull back and forth than the clutch cable needs replacing.

Broken clitch cable on 2000 chevy impala...how do u replace it..the wires are broken


see this steps and fix it. God bless you
Clutch Cable Replacement The clutch cable provides a means to "break the drive" between the engine and the wheels. The engine spins constantly, but the wheels do not, so in order to stop a car's wheels without turning off the engine, the wheels have to disconnect from the engine. When the clutch pedal is pressed, the cable disengages the plates, allowing the driver to shift gears or coast without killing the engine.
A failing clutch cable may make the clutch pedal difficult to depress. If the clutch cable fails, the clutch pedal may remain on the floor and not return to its normal position.
To replace the clutch cable, disconnect it from the clutch pedal (usually inside the vehicle) and from the release mechanism or cable attachment that operates the clutch assembly (usually at the transmission beneath the vehicle). A new clutch cable is then installed and adjusted. (The specifics vary according to the vehicle and range from straightforward to very difficult.)

Hi,I have a 2003 deuce done 11000 mls, rode it today felt asthough the clutch cable broke (no clutch) ,after further inspection clutch cable seams to be alright connected both ends,haven't pulled side...


Well, you only need the clutch to release, and that cannot be major. Inspect the cable completely, does it move at the trans end when you pulll it. What is inside is essentially a fork on a release bearing, a rod, and the clutch spring plate.

Changing the clutch cable


There are 2 types of cable used. Auto Adjust...and Manual Adjust. Either are easy to fit. Remove tray over foot=pedals will allow you to access one end of the cable. Here the cable simply hooks over the pedal linkage. Remove the outside plastic panel in front of windscreen to allow the cable to be installed. If the cable is the Manual Adjust type, loosen off the adjuster nuts at the clutch lever on the front / side of the gearbox and pull out cable.
If car is fitted with Auto Adjust cable...A Plastic Retainer Strap will be installed on the cable at the gearbox end. This retainer should be latched into place before removal. If the cable is broken at present you need not bother with this retainer. A new cable comes with this retainer already fitted. Its simply a matter of fitting the cable in place at both ends and then releasing this retainer. Do NOT release this until the cable is fully installed at BOTH ends

Riding yesterday and clutch cable went, felt like a rubber band breaking. Had a look today, not broken at either end. Can I fix this myself?


Sure you can fix it yourself. First lets make sure the cable is broke. When you pull in the clutch does the other end of the cable move?
If not then disconnect the cable from the lever and pull on the end by hand. Did you just pull a broken cable out of the sleeve?
If so then purchase a new cable and replce the broken one paying particular attention to the way it is routed. place the adjuster on the lever end a tad less than half way. Adjust the clutch end of the cable to take up the slack. Work the lever 3 times ( to seat everything) and use the adjuster at the lever for final adjustment. You want about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of play at the end of the lever befor the cable starts to actuate the clutch arm. Adjust and lock.

Kawasaki ninja zx9r clutch problem


On your bike there are two clutch parts that can wear and cause this problem. The broken spring should be replaced but is not causing the problem. Check the bottom of the clutch release shaft #13102. The end of the shaft may be broken, bent or severely worn. The part the shaft engages with is the clutch rod #46102. It could be bent, broken or severely worn. This part is inside the clutch hub. Just remove the five springs and then the outer cover plate and the rod should be accessible.
