Cable Venhill for Victory
The new cables are a real victory for owners of the American V-twins, since finding OE replacements in the UK is difficult, and cables from USA suppliers can cost over £100 (before shipping and import duties are added).
Venhill offer two types of clutch cable to suit different levers found on Victory bikes: one uses a double-stepped handlebar ferrule with a loose barrel nipple at the lever; the second version has a single-stepped ferrule with a ball nipple for the lever.
Made to a much higher specification than the factory-fitted items, Venhill Featherlight Cables are designed to deliver improved performance and durability along with smoother and lighter action - a big bonus for heavy cruiser clutches.
The Victory cables feature Venhill's high quality marine-grade stainless steel inner wire to eliminate stretch and a PTFE ‘teflon’ liner for minimum friction and a lighter action. The liner also removes the need for regular lubrication.
Each inner cable is ‘Bird-caged’: a special process applied to the end of the inner wire, which allows solder to penetrate the weave of the cable, making the bond with the nipple much stronger. This adds extra strength and durability, and helps reduce the risk of cable breakage.
The PTFE lined outer conduit is a two part construction, consisting of conventional spiral wound steel with longitudinal stands overlayed, which is then covered with a hardened PA6 Nylon jacket to keep moisture and corrosion out and protect the inner. This provides an exceedingly strong conduit and ensures all of the lever force is delivered directly to where it is needed.
Both versions of the Victory Clutch Cable retail at £89.92 each including VAT, and are designed to be a straight swap - no modifications required.
Nearly all Victory models made from 2005-on are covered, including the Highball, Kingpin, Vegas and Hammer.
