BMW K 75 Ultima (1998) Clutch Cable
Hi OldPete, thanks for your help, Like you said, I dropped Don a line and he came through for me.
His Answer was "soap and water, and you pull it up/through. Pull the new one through the other way (top down) more soap/water - and be careful you don't tear the rubber bellows."
In other words, I pulled the old cable up from the housing for the swinging arm and feed the new one down through the housing for the swinging arm.
I just modified his suggestion and coated the rubber bootie or bellows with Castrol Red Rubber Grease and once finished wiped the excess grease off of everything.
I then found I had lost the nipple that goes on the handle bar clutch lever end of the cable when the cable snapped.
I will get a new one from the agent on Monday, but came up with a temporary fix by cutting the old one off of the bottom of the old cable with a hacksaw with a cut wide enough to go over the cable. I then slid the modified old nipple onto the new cable at the clutch lever end.
Thanks from Stew to OldPete and Don
