Clutch cable

Post by Ciderbegood » Mon Mar 30, 2020 5:20 pm

Hi all,
I have 2001 Raptor that needs a little bit of work, nothing major, just a revamp.
I’m now in the process of gathering the bits I need. One of them is a clutch cable. The one on it is not standard. I think its a Suzuki one, feels a really vague clutch action but it works. It’s a bit of a long shot, does anyone have a good clutch cable to sell or an old one with all the adjusters still on it to sell. Or beg a loan of so I can get a copy made.

Thanks in advance Guys and Gals.
Bill

Venhill have made them in the past for people from here , not sure if they have the spec on file. Alternatively viewtopic.php?f=19&t=5040&p=38283&hilit ... ble#p38283

Hiya
I’ve contacted Venhill but unfortunately they don’t hold a pattern.
I’ll have a gander at the topic.

Thanks
Bill

Hi mate,
forget cable, go hydraulic.
It's cheap, easy to do and you won't have to worry about it again :happyhappy:

Cheers

Hiya.

It had crossed my mind. There’s a post on here about that, I’ll have a read.

Cheers

If you get stuck apparently a TL1000 cable only needs a bit of judicious straightening in a vice and then works fine.
