Clutch cables are one of the most stressed parts, next to chains and brake pads in the motorcycle sector. What many people don't know is that a clutch cable or throttle cable should also be greased. There are special Teflon sprays that can be applied regularly. Thus the wear of the cable is reduced.
If the Bouwden cable or one of the wires is torn, it usually does not take long before the complete cable is gone. A replacement is usually the easiest solution.
