screeching clutch cable

when the clutch cable moves there is the most horrific sound that comes from the nut at the base of the cable. i tried to fix it but it seems as though the nut does not want to tighten enough to prevent it from wiggling. am i missing something like a washer that should be closing the gap?

is the cable wire itself in good condition? mine used to sqeak before i exchanged it with a new one

Re: screeching clutch cable

hmmm... it seems ok . i made a couple of adjustments to it and it seems ok for the moment but i think i may change it in a little while.

where could i get one?

Re: screeching clutch cable

take the brake cable from a bicycle, cut the cable as desired and substitue it, although i must admit it's going to take some adjustment... my maxi clutch is being activated using a brake cable from a bicycle and it works fine

well with my bike it started to screech because it was old and the steel just wore out...
