I bought this cable for my 06 crf250r. I lubed the cable before use and the pull is strong and smooth, very happy with that. I gave three stars because the casing is about 2" longer than stock without the cable even adjusted! now it loops out above my bar pad and looks a little hoakey...to me at least but I'm picky. if you want a smooth pulling well built cable and don't mind a little extra length this is for you!
