I've got what I believe to be a bad clutch cable. Basically when I'm in 1st gear moving forward slowly in traffic at a junction; I'm getting a grinding noise. Now I believe my clutch is slipping due to excess wear in the cable. The clutch at the moment is routed wrong anyway just to work.

It's fine in every other gear the shaft has been recently lubed. After a shaft failure I do it now once a month. Overdone but as I'm down to one bike need to keep it perfect.

So instead of buying a new clutch cable for the rs bars I'm switching the whole setup and going for rt/lt bars. I've kept putting it off purely down to the cost of cables.

So can anyone identify the bars in the image. Don't want to waste money ordering the wrong cables.

Kind regards

Anyone able to identify the model of these bars. 20180410

Right K1100LT with heated grips Middle K75 RT Heated grips and the Left I think K100RT with heated grips. The usual disclaimers go with that info.
