Compare the length of the new cable with the old one.
Are they the same?

By looking at the old cable can you make a judgemnet were the adjustments were set.
Read the owners manual and be through and patient.

Take your time you will get it right.

Here's a tip that wont help you this time..

When replacing your clutch cable.. Tie the new one to the bottom of the old one. Pull the old one out and the new one will be in the perfect place

You can try two things I have done that worked for me. But it depends how stripped it is..
1. Try to use a similar sized TORX bit, the star shape sometimes will give you a grip on the stripped bolthead. Or,
2. Try to make a slot in the bolthead, with a dremel or something similar, and see if you can make a flat or Phillips head out of the screw. I know my cordless drill saved my once or twice with a torx bit and a stripped screw.
