Crappy feeling

Man its a real crappy feeling when you get off a 12hr shift and pull out of work, just to have your clutch cable break!! I shifted to 3rd and BAM!!! I had a blast riding the 10miles or so back to the house with trying not to stop and having to downshift!!

Just reach down and pull it at stop lights, lol.

Shifting would be no problem, though.

wow thats sounds like fun. FYI motion pro makes stock replacement cables for about $19.00. You can also get a custom one made in a SS liner for about $20 more.

Turn it off when stopping for lights and start it in gear when leaving lights. Then the rest of the shifting is no biggy. I only used the clutch for starting and stoping anyways.

shouldnt be an issue to get home. you can clutchless shift no problem then at a light just kill it and start in 2nd (if your bike doesnt have a clutch sensor).

It's not necessarily just most sport bikes, particularly Japanese bikes tend to have cables nowadays.

Might check CG. I would think they would have one in stock.
