but not to diminish your post,
cables still need to be removed on a regular basis in order to perform a good inspection at the upper end, and to get a look at the individual strands as they flex around the upper attachment point down til they enter into the cable housing. You will also need to grease any points of contact within the clutch handle/lever too.
In my experience, I have always found that with any broken cable, MOST OF THE TIME IT ALWAYS STARTS with a few strayed/cut strands at the upper end.
And the only way to find these, is to open it up and remove the lever/cable connection for an inspection.
Hope this helps
