Can anybody supply a picture of the proper clutch cable routing around the ignition lock for a 2015 KLR650? I had my front end off for service and although I thought I put it back the same the clutch cable is making an annoying creaking sound as it rubs the lock. When I try to relocate, it migrates back and does the same thing. Thanks.

Regrettably, the cable rub over the fairing bracket may be totally normal. An inch narrower handlebar would probably solve the noise / rubbing.

Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!

Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
