Hey Stichill, I've looked every where here in South Africa with no luck.
I'll use what I currently have and set a reminder to do it ever 3 months or so as it is such a quick thing to do.

Hey guys just spend an hour or so replacing the clutch cable.
I also decided that I will take both clutch and brake levers off to regrease the pivot points and polish the levers to a shine.
They feel brand new. I've also put a reminder for every 6 months.
I've attached a picture of my old cable. It had 3 solid strands left.



Any way good day and ride safe.

Mufasa, this isn't very elegant or high tech, but, I use a dropping bottle (old eyedrops or nasal spray bottle will work) with automatic transmission fluid and add it a drop at a time to the cable below the barrel but above the cover (sheese, that is the only place that you can lube the clutch cable). I add a dab of grease to the hole in the clutch lever before re-installing the barrel, also.

similar with cable tied in a U shape, sewing machine oil by the drop..
wait, sm oil penetrates, drain [re-use].. or just sm oil into vertical cable..
[mothers] sewing machine oil worked well tho, thus this habit...
