Repair a broken clutch cable


FlashGordon

Broke the clutch cable at the upper lever while on an extended ride far away from home. A friend had a great idea I'd like to pass on. We pulled out the cable from the sleeve, and inserted it backwards so the lead coupling could be used in the upper lever. The sheared end of the cable was now at the bottom by the lower lever attached to the clutch disengage shaft. We used a small bolt and nut with 3 washers and pinched the cable between the washers, with the bolt going through the part of the lower lever where the swedged cable normally attaches. 1 or the 3 washers was slid between the upper and lower tabs of the lower lever, so it would not smash the tab when tightened.

Worked great for the 3 days I was there.

Foot pegs are possibly the most over looked parts on a bike but one of the most important parts. No matter how much power your bike makes, it means nothing if there is no control of the bike . You probably haven't given much consideration to you're footpegs before, but pretty much all professional AMA  supercross , motorcross  and off-road riders ride go with aftermarket footpegs for a wider platform, more grip and overall control of the bike .
      Our Pro series Flo Motorsports Foot pegs will offer all of the above . The foot pegs you are about to purchase are the same pegs used by Factory Supercross teams like Traders Racing (Yamaha) , BPR Home Depot ( Yamaha)  and JMC Husquvarna.   Our pegs are constructed from highly durable 7075 T6 alloy making them much more durable then some standard cheap 6061 T6 that many competitors use on the market.
