Clutch cable prob (with pics)
I know this has been discussed, but I hadn't seen many pics of the issue, so I thought I would share a couple. Sometime last week, my clutch suddenly became loose while I was riding the Versys to work. Luckily, it didn't completely break and I was able to get it home that day. Ordered 2 clutch cables, one to keep on the bike for a spare - and I am glad I did.
Looking at the removed cable, it appears to me that this will be a problem no matter how much it is cared for or lubed. Metal rubbing against metal will fatigue the cable eventually. You might want to take a look at yours. This was at the lever end of the cable.
Also, get a spare and just keep it under the seat or in luggage on the bike. Cheap insurance against getting stuck somewhere without a clutch.
