Hey Wayne,

Same, except I used the Eagle Mike 1.5" risers. I'd say there's barely enough slack in the cable, but I did have to mess with that cable-housing-bolt-thingy right by the clutch arm to ease it up slightly.

If you can't find a longer cable, maybe the extended clutch arm from Arrowhead would help. http://www.angelfire.com/ut/moab/parts_frames.html
Click on "New Products" on the left, and just scroll down a bit till you find it. Not the prettiest or most functional website in the world. It'll probably reduce pull more than introduce more slack, but having that extra length to install the cable has to count for a little something right?

does it require extra length or give you slack ?
