Longer clutch cable needed, HELP

So I changed my 2" ROX risers out for a 3.5' set and now my clutch cable is binding when I turn right. Does anyone know of a compatable cable that is 2-3 inches longer?

I have a longer cable from a Yamaha XT that I figured would work but the cable inside the sleeve has a longer throw and won't adjust out. If that makes any sense...

Certainly if you call, he'll make sure it's the right one.

I first looked for longer clutch cables for the XR600 and there were none listed so I checked for the XR650l which is basically the same and they list the +3" cable.


Removing the dip stick while the engine is running is possible. There will be some oil spitting but nothing to terrible.

Yes , you can. Nothing will come out. You just cant add oil while running. This is how I check my oil . Running the oil is all where its supposed to be. Only a little air comes out.
