2011 model with 31k out here in Rockland Maine, getting ready to help lead a motorcycle tour up the coast on Thursday, I notice my clutch cable feels like it needs a little adjustment so I give the adjuster a twist. The cable then snaps down near the clutch arm on the case!
Screwed am I, because I was too lazy to lay a backup clutch cable on top of the stock standard one. I know better, but that didn’t move me to action.
Fact is, in the woods you can almost get away with having no clutch because you don’t have to stop for stoplights. But not so when shepherding slow street riders from traffic light to traffic light.
No clutch cables to be found at any Kawasaki dealer in Maine. I know, because I called them all. They’d be happy to order them and then ship them to me after they receive them in two or three days = N.G.
Amazon, Motosport & RevZilla also couldn’t ship immediately.
So I call Eagle Mike, diagonally across the country in San Diego. Of course he has one in stock - and he rushes it down to FedEx and it will be here. before. noon. tomorrow. !!!
The KLR community is blessed to have this guy in our world.
