KLR 250 Clutch cable just broke! Looking for replacement cable suggestions

So I was riding down the mountain on this off road trail on my way back to the highway and noticed that my clutch was loose all the sudden, so I stopped to check it out before hitting the freeway. Found out my clutch cable was only holding by 4 stands.

I made it home home ok, but now need to order a new cable and looking for recommendations on replacement upgrade cables.

So let me know if Y'all have any preferred clutch cable replacements or if I should just get a OEM style.

I was looking at the the Motion Pro T3 Clutch Cable, or Tusk Cable.

Thanks!

Motion Pro clutch cables have a nice, plastic sleeve inside. Properly lubed, they can give you a very easy pull and a long lasting cable. Others may have a liner as well, but I've always had good luck with Motion Pro cables.

Awesome thanks for the reply and input. I will probably go with the Motion Pro cables. Got to replace it soon. Not being able to ride is killing me. Glad the clutch cable didn't break on the freeway though.
