Does anyone know if the 2009 VT750C riser (Part number 53231-mcl-000) fits [a 2007 VLX600]??
On stock '07 Honda 600's, the clutch cable is routed BEHIND the speedo cable. The problem with routing a longer clutch cable behind the speedo cable is that the longer cable binds or pushes on the speedo cable in a full swing RIGHT when the slack is at its fullest and has no where to go. You'd tunk the simple solution is to instead route the longer clutch cable INFRONT of the speedo cable. However, the longer cable would have to be even longer for the added distance that it takes to wrap around (infront) of the speedo cable instead of behind the speedo cable. So, add at least 2 more inches to what you think is necessary to the final length of your longer clutch cable.Originally Posted by Panteradon
....but I just checked and the clutch cable will have to be replaced.
From the pics I've seen so far of the VT750C2 clutch cables, the lower terminal appears different from the Shadow 600's. Dunno.I would think that the VT750C2 clutch cable will work, but I have not verified it.
corrections edited in redHave you tried to reroute the clutch cable? BobNrtp said he rerouted, but I have not really looked at how.
These mods take some thought. The snag here is whether or not the clutch cable is long enough with taller risers. Since you'll still have your factory risers with you, you can always put them back on while you shop around for longer clutch cables if indeed that turns out to be the case. It's not like your bike will be out of commission in the interim. That's the way most DIY owners wing it with their own mods, two steps back, 1½ steps forth.Not sure I will continue the project or not.
