I put my clutch cable back on and wasnt even tightening it down hard, and noticed the thread stripped... this is very annoying. I have a new primary cover en route since I am biking across country in two weeks, but wanted to ask... Has anyone had this happen? Is there a way to fix it? I would like to salvage the old one if I can and make it a spare since Buell service and parts are hard to come by.
Thanks for the help!

Most of the time the threaded part of the clutch cable snaps off in the primary cover when tightend to much.
Only option is to go for a time sert and repair it like that.
Or a helicoil ,but maybe that's going to leak to much.

Thanks! I am taking a bike trip next week so ordered a new primary cover to be safe... Ill update with the fix when I get it worked out. I think helicoil or that timesert may work if I use that permanent green locktite on it, let it set up and then thread the cable into it.
Thanks again brother!
