Clutch and Front Brake Cable Routing

Postby Chessiegolf » Thu Nov 19, 2020 3:52 pm

On my standard G12, the clutch and front brake cables are routed through the holes in the top yoke, along with the choke and dip switch cables. Is this the correct route? Having just had a solder connection give way on the clutch cable and in extricating the cable it occurred to me that the route puts quite a strain on the ends of the outer cables and perhaps the holes are only there for electrical cables, not bowden cables.

Can anybody comment please, and before I remove the choke cable to check, can someone confirm that the nipple at the handlebar end will pass through the hole. I was going to order a made-up cable from Venhill, then thought that if I do will I be able to get the cable through the hole with the nipple attached.

Thanks in anticipation

I use the holes for all the cables, control and electrical on my G11 and G12 without issues.
