Just got a 2001 and stripped it down and fixed all problems that I could find. Got it back together and was routing the cables, the clutch and comp release bind when handlebars are turned to 1 side. It actually pulls the comp release out of its holder on the engine. The service manual I have shows the cables routed in front of the triple trees and then through the holder on the frame. Don't know if the bars are stock but they appear to be. I could slide the perch closer to the steering stem to gain an inch but want to make sure they are routed correctly before trying other options. If someone has theirs apart and have a pic, that would be even more helpful.
