Default Warranty work???

I bought my 2008 Warrior with 0 miles on it in April 2011. This morning on the way to work the Star Braided clutch cable snapped. A fun trip to work with no clutch!

I took it to the local Yamaha dealership and he said that the warranty usually does not cover this type of thing. He has been awesome to deal with on my dad's Royal Star Tour Deluxe so I don't doubt his word. If the warranty does not cover this it should only be 100.00 or so. He is going to try and get it covered since there is so few miles on it.

The bike is only on the road for 18 months and has less than 5200 miles on it and I have to replace something already...This was why I left Honda because the warranty would not replace or fix anything.

I guess we'll see.

That's not the factory original clutch cable which is why the warranty may or may not cover it.

My factory clutch cable started shredding on me during my last ride and my bike has just a tadd over 10k miles on it.

Cables are considered to be consumable items and would not normally be covered under warranty.
The dealer might consider to make a good will gesture because the bike has covered so few miles.
If he gets something done for you, it would be fair to say that he acted beyond the call of duty and deserves to be commended for his good service.

I agree with all statements made. I already told him if he could get it covered that would be awesome. If he can't don't sweat it.

My original factory clutch cable didn't even make it to 5,000 miles. Put a Barnett on it and all good so far. I think the Yamaha cables suck.

He never said he changed it. So I believe it is the factory original.

100 bucks is high. Get a Barnett's for 70 bricks. They're much better anyway.

You are correct. It came on the bike from the factory. The dealership even went out on the floor to look at the 2008 he had with 0 miles and it had the same braided cable on it.
