I am having a problem when installing a new clutch cable which I route over the throttlepivot on the trans. The cable rubs on the pivotand puts load on the pivot which caused the bolton the throttle pivot to break. Also was therea different cable originally that was slightlylonger? If I adjust the clutch to not catchat the very top I get some judder also. Everything has been replaced flywheel, pilot bearing, fork, disc, throwout bearing, & cable.Someone said to put a spacer in cable to extendit slightly but I don't have much cable to play with. I have checked also the tube coming out of the body which I understand on 914's may cause problems but this also seemed fine unless it gotworn down over the years by a mm .I have looked at other 930's and the clutch cable seems to clear the throttle pivot by 1/4" to 1/2"but not mine. If I tighten the cable it moves up slightly. The travel distance does not matchthe specs in the shop manual.. the difference between depressed and released measures 29 mminstead of 27mm
