85 k100 rs. .Hi have any of you had the clutch cable break about a foot down from the lever next to the tank and what did you do to cure it fom kinking

i have had 2 cables break now in the same place and was wondering if the routing was incorrect on my bike,its always when you turn the bars all the time it seems to kink the cable and eventually snap.There doesnt seem to be any free slide in the cable casing to allow it to slip back along the top of the air box,as always your comments will be much appreciated

Not sure how you routed it but it should take a gradually curving path down in front of the steering head to under the right side of the tank and then back to the left by the intake plenum.

Thanks for that i will look at it tomorrow in the day light

it goes under the clocks,its a bit tight then down along the fork tube,around the corner then off down under the tank where it tihgt on top of the plenum and then off to the rear.the issue i think is that there is that the cable doesnt slip back and causes it to kink then eventually snaps ,its a pain in the neck and always goes when your in stop start traffic
