clutch cable routing

Check you clutch cable routing!

Was doing some work on the bike today and noticed that where the clutch cable runs down along the steering head via two wire loops was getting pretty badly bent/bunched when I turned the bars to full lock.

Refer to #18. I had to adjust the slack so it wouldn't bunch up.

Full right steering lock:

Invader - good pics. I might do the same. Seems it would make the cable route straighter would aid in making the cable pull smoother and easier.

Removed the top wire loop holder and clutch cable is free.
