Better than 33k on my stocker. It did not break, but I changed it because it was getting rough.

A little oil on the cable's ball-ends so they always swivel easily and cables usually last a long time!

My cables have over 38,000 miles on them and my bike has sat outside since day one. The are rotten and cracking apart from the sun but the metal braids and cable are still holding up.

I need to source out some good BLACK braided lines for my clutch and throttle.

Ask Barnett about their Stealth II cables, they appear to be black braided stainless but I have no idea how these are produced. They are pictured to the LEFT of the black vinyl cables.

Factory warranty (if it is a covered issue) is still only one year regardless of miles unless you purchase an extended service contract. My lines were discolored from being rubber banded and sitting in a crate for two years.... Yamaha gave me new lines with no questions asked.

Unfortunately I was told by Barnett a couple months back that they only offer the stealth cables for Harleys and have no plans to make em for the warrior, even custom cables, best they will do is make you a black one and then you will have to paint the fittings.

Went by to pick up the bike today. The cables were not warranteed BUT the TT Bars were replaced under a recall. So I guess that wasn't too bad. 100.00 for a new cable installed.

i think i paid like 60.00 to 70.00 for my barnetts "never lube" cable. it was literally maybe a fifteen minute job for a guy who doesn't know what he's doing.

Hopefully it doesn't break again but if it does I will do it myself for sure. I knew it was an easy fix but they had the bike and the cable had to be ordered so it was just easier this time.
