Hi from sydney

Ok, so I just joined the KLR club yesterday buying a used 2009 KLR with 45k km ( about 28k miles ). I'm a uni student here.

Anyway that's all for the good news , unfortunately today my clutch cable broke and I am very frustrated as I had to leave my bike in the city center alone in the cold while I get a new cable tomorrow (Sydney has so many traffic lights I gave up on trying to get it to work without the clutch). I'm scared as hell that my bike may get stolen . So, I am hoping that the old owner genuinely didn't knew about that are and he actually took care of the bike (30 bucks is not much, but it still hurts my confidence in the bike). I have to confess I kind of pulled the clutch a lot more than necessary, so I dunno.

Tomorrow I'll fix it and hopefully nothing bad will happen again soon (cross fingers).

Hi Parcus!
Welcome to the Forum and the World of KLR! Sorry for your troubles, that is how mechanical things are.
At 45000k it wouldn't surprise me the cable is original or only changed once before. You may want to check/replace the throttle cables as well.
Hope you have better luck in the future but in the overall scheme of things a broken clutch cable isn't too bad!
