Default Clutch Cable - Reroute??

Has anyone figured out a way to reroute the clutch cable to clear the obstructed view of the gauge cluster?

If so, please post pics and details!

Very good question. I've tried a few different ways but still can't get it just right. I still have to lean forward to see how many miles I put on my current tank of fuel.

Use a zip tie and strap it to the fork or triple or fairing stay....whatever works best for you. Make it just tight enough that it pulls it down or over so its not in the way but its still lose enough to move when you pull the clutch. I forget which one i used but it worked well enough to get it out of the way.

I used a zip tie to just barley nudge it more towards the tank.

Use a hair band and a zip tie. The hair band will provide elastic relief so the cable won't stretch but allow you to pull it further out of the way when it is relaxed. If you are a stunter or like your cable adjusted very tight this won't really work.
