Trike Motorcycle Clutch Cable Problems

by Dave

I hope that maybe someone can help me with my Trike Motorcycle Clutch Cable Problems. My clutch cable on my 2003 Roadhawk trike gets frayed and breaks soon after having it replaced.

The cable starts to fray up towards the front of the trike where it wraps around that thing that resembles a hook or something.

My question is whether it should the cable run through some lube or something to cut down on the friction when I shift?

I can't afford to buy a trike or replace my transmission with automatic transmission so I really need some help.

Can anyone help me fix my Trike Motorcycle Clutch Cable Problems.

I had the same problem with my 1969 Honda CB750 chopper.

I had custom handlebars and had to have custom clutch cable made for it.

I went through 3 cables in 3 weeks even when I lubed it. Finally gave up as I liked the bars. and drove it for 10 years with no clutch. Never had to replace the clutch as I had great timing. LOL Good Luck

Lubrication helps,but messy.The best fix is hydraulic,like brakes. Master cylinder and slave cylinder
