replaced my clutch cable today

Well everyone i just thought i would share this. I bought my klr last year and the clutch lever was always hard to pull, lubing the cable didn't help. I finally replaced the cable today and all i can say is WOW! The lever is so easy to operate, like butter - also the front end seems much lighter when i roll on the throttle. Only thing i can think is the clutch wasn't fully engaging before although it seemed to have been... So unlike the DPO i am going to lube the cables and keep them properly adjusted. Best 23 dollars i've spent in a long time.
