Clutch cable

263 Views 9 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  fasteddiecopeman
This morning on the ride to work I noticed that my clutch lever was not returning fully after I let it out. Once parked, I found out why.



I started doing some searching and found discovered the 2012 cable (54011-0554) is back ordered until mid June. The 2015 cable (54011-0594) is available. Does anyone know if these cables are interchangable? I have a charity ride this weekend and can't safely ride this. I have a second bike, but I love the V1.....

There appears to be differences in the clutch lever designs between the two which could result in different cable lengths possibly. Here's some parts diagrams showing the differences

Don't know if this is any help, kinda hard to search south of the border besides French but they may have it

Thanks, that鈥檚 in France.

I ordered the back ordered one from the local dealer, and one from China on eBay. We will see which arrives first. The China one will be an emergency cable either way.

That's funny, I guess my French really is crap. I saw some on Ebay from China but didn't want to assume your interest. Glad you got something in the works.

I live in Canada and my French is probably just as bad.

Thanks for trying, I appreciate it.

The red text is an issue.

Appreciate the effort though. Thanks.

FWIW - I always carried a spare clutch-cable on each Versys so IF it broke I didn't have to check around for a new one.
