  • Clutch cable connector/clip snapped

    Im unsure of the components name but its the clip that holds the bottom of the clutch cable in position.

    The damn thing snapped the other day, i attempted a putty/zip-tie method to produce a temporary fix. This worked great, for 4 miles... It then came loose and my bike is now parked about 3 miles away :/

    So here I am, aching and tired, asking the gurus for help

    The pivot arm and everything else in this area functions correctly, its just the clip at the end of this arm that should hold the clutch cable as it enters the casing.

    There doesn't appear to be anything appropriate on ebay, is the part available anywhere? (UK) However I would prefer to not spend money, any advice on ways of fixing it with more common/everyday components? (I don't weld)

    Thanks fellas.

        o ok, I just tore my casing off last night thinking I broke a clutch cable again. It wasnt the cable. The clip I just showed you snapped, so now I have to order one from my dealer. If all else fails for you, bikebandit.com sells the part, I think it said it was $33.00 plus shipping but dealers are usually cheaper than bike bandit. goodluck

          Hah thats unlucky mate.

          A local dealer quoted me 35 ($57)!! just for the small lever.

          I went down to a bike breaker to find many many similar levers, but none exactly the same. I bought a similar one for 5.

          Then proceded to hack off the clips rivet with a screwdriver/hammer. (dont have a grinder) I then managed to widen the holes with a drill and bolt the new clip to the old lever. (two nuts tightened together to allow the clip to move freely)

          Works like a charm

                Suzuki car dealerships cant order motocycle parts, they are technically two different companys. Sucks I know, I work at a Suzuki Car dealership.
