Clutch cable TTR600RE

Has anybody bought a Clutch cable recently for a TTR600RE ? Ive had trouble finding any online and the shop I normally get Yamaha parts from have just quoted me £48.00 surely that cant be right they should be less than £15.00.

Can anybody help please or reccomend an aftermarket supplier ?
I checked wemoto website non listed but havent contacted them

Is it possible to have new cables fitted in to your outer ?

Hi
I think you may have trouble getting a cable see http://www.horizonsunlimited.com/hub...ch-cable-35397

If it is the inner cable that has broken you could make up a inner and use a solderless nipple Solderless -
You may have to cut the nipple down to fit the lever.

Do you know how much diferent the TTRE cable is to a XT600e cable as the XT should be avaible for less then £20

The cable for a TTR kick start model is also about £48 but I use a cable part no 7 L 26 55U-01 which is about £15 the cable is about 8 cm longer but the same nipples the clutch is a bit stiff because of the way you need to route the longer cable I am trying to shorten one at the moment.
The AA breakdown have the stuff to make up/repair cables my friend had one on his TTR which worked fine.

You could also try Welcome to Venhill they may be able to make you a cable if you send them your old one

Thanks for the replies, I tried Kedo and not available, I'm a bit wary of them solderless nipples has i'd tried one before on an old trail bike and i'm not sure if it failed ?

That venhill sounds promising if they will make one up, Ill give them a ring.

Edit*
Been in touch with Venhill, £21.00 plus Vat and P&P to copy your cable, Inner and outer.
£10.00 plus Vat and P&P to use your outer sleeve and fit new inner.

Sounds good to me, cheers bolla.

I've just got it off now and am sending it off to Venhill, will let people know total cost later, there's a bit of a bracket on it but dont know where they get £45 quid from.
