    The true test of the man’s character is that the cable is not just for him but fellow riders and even the poor schmuck stuck on the side of the road!

    He has a lot of informative videos.

    Been thinking about doing the brake light flash thing on the trunk watched the video on that after watching this cable idea.

    Apologies for posting the same video on the General board. At least it won't be missed.

    You are starting to worry me as I drift between threads and well, the gay thing here and the dick thing over there...

    It appears Paul is good with his hands when it comes manipulating things and modifying ends of stuff that requires tension and performance under pressure but...

    Yeah he is awesome and used his light comparsion to change out my “head”light :run:

    My apologies, the wife’s been broken for few days & since I haven’t been able to play with her I guess my estrogen levels got away from me. Sorry Folks, I didn’t mean to scare ya & yes Pauljp is a Victory legend.

    Very nice repair job. Neat and clean. I’ve replaced many clutch cables on Brit bikes, which had to have the nipples soldered in. I like this method much better! I’ve also ridden bikes for days with no clutch. A real challenge in town with lights and stop signs,

    I had my clutch cable snap on me when I was riding the Dragon some years ago. I managed to get it to a shop nearby, and the old school wrench there made me a custom cable by soldering the nipples on. That was several years ago and I'm still using that cable on the bike. I have no idea how you rode for days w/ no clutch.. I know HOW, but unless you can time things perfectly at lights etc having to push start the bike every time you have to talk off and kick it into low requires someone in a lot better aerobic shape than I"M in that's for sure. :)

    It was an old velocette 500 single, works scrambler that was converted for road use. I was was a penniless young apprentice at the time and would have to wait for my next pay to be able to buy some cable. It actually happened to me three times over a period of three years. It was my sole means of transport though, and the bike was fairly light.

    Yep, get it started, which on a cold winter morning was sometimes a challenge, push it as fast as you can, jump on and drop it into first. Clutchless shifts were the easy part. Downshifting prior to lights and into neutral before stop. Then as the light changes, push it again, jump on and into 1st.

    I got paid, in cash, every Thursday, so sometimes it would be a week before I had enough money for a length of cable. I’d be really hard pressed to do it now at age 70, and pushing my Vegas! However, with old age comes treachery, so I imagine I’d be ok as long as I always pulled up on a downhill!
