    I am no expert, but a lot of the times with cables snapping you use the old one to thread the new one through.

    I find it quite amusing, the "best shit for a scooter" has got to be a classic! Razz

    replacing cables at the side of the road is a pain.
    This is how I do it:
    Basically unclip either end of the cable, pull old inner out and put new inner cable in.
    Then attach new outer cable to the top of the old outer using something like gaffer tape and carefully pull through the outer from the engine end until the new one is through the frame and in the new inner cable


    If that made sense Rolling Eyes

    The VCBs a good one for asking daft questions. For example someone asking how to take the side panels off a PX... which is fair enough I suppose if you've never been shown, or forget how to use a bit of logic now and again!

    But feel free to ask seemingly silly questions on here !
