    I actually have two Rich. One is a very OLD Yamaha brand, single screw, the second, a couple years old double screw, lube tool...

    Its funny as both work about the same, I really don't loose any more lube with the single screw vs the double screw (behave boys!!!)....

    If you remove that plastic clutch cable retainer next to the air box, that clutch cable can be removed without touching the tank, air box etc... I've had mine disconnected for years, there's no place for that cable to go..

    I suspect Yamaha put it there to make assembly easier at the factory.


    Funny, I think you and I might have been on the same page regarding that clutch cable retainer business. I wound up leaving it disconnected because I didn't want to remove the airbox, etc., for necessary access to properly attach it around cable after my cable replacement. As you said, there's no place for the cable to go---retainer clip doesn't appear to be doing any necessary job as the cable routing is secure w/o it.

    I truly believe that retainer is there for the manufacturing process only.

    Just to hold it in place when they either raise the engine, or the lower the frame to each other when initilly assembling. I cut it off from the outside, never pulled the air box (maybe for the BD 43 mod, don't remember). Still the original cables, plenty of adjustment left too! 18,000 miles
