this not only makes a difference in the life of the cable but i also think it smooths out the cable pull and makes the clutch a little smother when trying to operate. kill 2 bird with one stone.....

Anyone know of an upgraded clutch cable for these bikes? Looking to replace the cable on my Duke II.

Otherwise, I hear Magura has a hydraulic conversion....

motion pro makes one but i have heard conflicting reports on whether or not it is better than stock. if you do this fix, you shouldn't need to worry about it much anymore. as for the hydraulic clutch, ive heard mixed results about adding one of them as well. i frankly like the simplistic nature of the cable. if your worried, buy 2 and string them in at the same time but only hook one up. that way if you do have a failure all you have to do is swap over and keep riding. i know several people who have done this, especially on the adventure models which take forever to access.

What's a cable? Isn't that what keeps weeds out from between the brake lever & engine cases?
