I must say I like to find out probs with a new bike , rather than folk hiding behind a logo only saying only good things. I received this today,

Bad PDI from Victor Devine rather than a Honda problem.
I've no idea how to add a signature.

Just wondered how you came to that conclusion, is there something in the photo I've missed? Nige

I can't see how the end of a clutch cable can come out like that without it being adjusted incorrectly. Never had one go like that on all the bikes I've owned.

Fair enough. Your post wasn't clear.

ps. "Once again"? Explain.

Even a retard like me could tell from the first two lines that it wasn't Al's bike.

I wouldn't worry about the cable unless the problem repeated itself and then I might start asking questions about how the nipple fits in the operating arm.

If there was so much slack in the inner cable to let it escape the release arm I'm surprised the clutch would clear in use! Nige.
