Randyborehole,   can ya explain that some more please as i don't understand it.

 

I'd an 850 which had damaged it's cable at the headstock - the outer plastic helps give support to the complete cable. The inner coils were exposed and began to compress themselves together when you operated the clutch lever. This compression of the coils took up lever movement without actually moving the clutch arm at the 'box

Exactly the same thing happened to my old mk1, couldn't see the damaged cable at first as it was underneath the lever so to speak.  The inner threads had started breaking and they all bunched up where the outer cable was damaged.
