Clutch Cable Fraying
So, I don't know if other Versys owners have had the same issue, but a google search on "clutch cabele fraying" brings up a plethora of Kawasaki forums that have the same issue. On other bikes (I have searched this forum and found nothing the like) it seems that cable will be all good and dandy for the first 7-8k miles, and then snap, break, fray, or a combination of them all. I have adjusted what I can, but even with the lever completey engaged (pulled in), the clutch is not completely disnegage, making nigh impossible to shift when at a stop or down into first.
I think its still under warranty, its only at 7 1/2 k miles, but I have a feeling the local Kawa shop will be delayed a bit, so this might be a DIY project. Word to the wise, lube the top and bottom of where the bare wire inserts into the lever assembly, stress and/or contact with the medal must have slowly put wear on it that it made a very aduible snap. Hopefully it doesn't break before I replace it.
Has any one else had this issue? Suggestions on an alternative clutch cable?
