The easy way is to cut the rubber off and thread it on by rotating. The hard way is to remove your cable from the clutch arm, remove the rubber and slide the cable through it.
I'm gonna say the opposite and say that the easier method is by removing the cable. Although the even easier method is to get a tension spring instead of a compression spring and hook it to that linkage arm. No need to cut or disassemble anythingOh I didn’t think of that, thank you!!!! I’m going to grab some scissors now lol.
I think Brian Van pretty much revolutionized the motorcycle retain industry with his review videos and later on, the "how to" videos. Now many other companies followed along and started doing the same, which is all of great help to most consumers. STG and Brian Van are legit. Great addition to the industry for sure and although I haven't met him in person, he seems to be a pretty good dude. His son Max is pretty **** fast now on that 400, running with the front group in most of the MotoAmerica Jr Cup races this year!Here's the Brian Van, Sportbike Track Gear Dot Com version of the install.
For future stuff, that YouTube channel has an install video for pretty much everything you'd ever want to do to the Ninja 400. If I was in the US I'd probably exclusively shop there just because of the time/pain they've saved me.
