Clutch cable stretched out so much, i suddenly couldn't take off any more
I went out riding on some country roads with a friend last night. we had to get through two four way stops in front of a school and rush hour was still going on.
I was using the clutch to creep along really slow the whole time. Then when we finally got past it. I try to turn right from a stop sign and keep stalling and clutch lever was total mush. The clutch cable had stretched out a lot. I had to get over on the side of the road real fast and let the cars behind me go past while I figured out where the friction zone was. Fortunately it was close to a gas station, so we pulled in there and I tightened the cable.
I've had the bike slightly over 3 months, but I'm only up to 450 miles so far. So I guess the cable is still breaking in. It was pretty dramatic.
I had previously tweaked out the cable so that the friction zone was closer to the grip already. But this loosened so much that all of the sudden I was missing the whole friction zone trying to take off and the lever just felt like it was hanging loose.
