I can't believe I've put up with the old clutch cable for so long. It's very smooth now, like new. The reason I never suspected the cable was, that it went bad so quickly after installing it, a few thousand k's at the most. The new one has got to be better.
I also fitted the left indicator. It's not wired-in yet, but I have to say, it is an improvement over the stock indicators. Unfortunately, this is going to cost me $45, because now I have to do the rear as well. The first set was $25 off Trade me. Someone had bought them, but never fitted them.
