GSXS Clutch Cable wear

GSXS Clutch Cable wear, because the clutch cable passes between the radiator and the frame on the right side of the bike (looking forward), it rubs against a sharp edge on the radiator bracket.   This can cause the clutch cable to wear through very rapidly, an unfortunate design error along with a couple of others

A quick and easy fix for this is to attach clear plastic hose over the clutch cable.  This stops the cable it self from wearing on the sharp edge of the radiator.

Take a short length of clear plastic hose, about 10mm inside diameter, split up its length in a spiral cut, slide it over the clutch cable and into the correct position between the radiator bracket and frame, fix in place with cable ties.
