Fraying clutch cable has been on order for a month. If it had broken would mean your bike would be down for a month this is ridiculous totally unacceptable Triumph

I've been waiting for a month as well. Was told by someone at Triumph HQ that I should expect it in the first week of November.

My dealer, Locomotion Powersports in Mahwah, NJ ordered a new clutch cable for me ten days ago. I got a call this morning that the cable is in.
I inquired about a solution and was told they'll "tweak" the offending part, I'm not very confident the fraying cable won't happen again.:rolleyes:

As has been mentioned a few times here on other threads; if you are using the standard handlebars, it's trivial and easy to just remove that unnecessary clamp.
With other bars, I can't comment, cause I'm using the standard ones.
I removed mine some time ago, without making it an issue to my dealer. My mechanic said the same, just remove the clamp. Sure my cable is chaffed up a tiny bit, but it's just cosmetic and I can't really see it, so it doesn't bother me.

Also, even if the cable's black plastic coating gets chaffed bad, I really can't see the metal outer spiral jacket getting damaged, so one still should be able to ride until the new cable arrives!

If Triumph are a little behind on this albeit; little issue, then that's how it is. Nothing really to get upset about. :crying::wink2::smile2:

Cheers!
Love & Peace

Sure!
It's the clamp, easily visible, on the left fork tube between the fork yokes or triple trees.
Hope this helps.
