07 clutch cable - no lock nut?

Recommended Posts

My clutch cable broke on the engine side.  I'm installing a new OEM cable, but noticed it's missing a locknut on the engine side.  Is this normal? I didn't see it on the parts diagrams for the 07 wr450f

Just want to confirm that mine didn't fall off after mine broke.

Other bikes seem to have it:

WR450 OEM clutch cables do not have a lock nut on the engine end.   They rely on tension to keep the cable in the holder.

There are no threads on the cable so you couldn't put a lock nut even if you wanted to.
