    you're supposed to use the stock crx cable. so no you don't need to get one from a da

    adjust the cable all the way out..put the cable on the bottom of the fork..now pull up and put the tightener onto the bracket..make sure you adjust the cable all the way out before doing so..

    the bracket looks bent back and up...
    but if not..try unbolting the bracket.putting the lower piece on then rebolt it up..
    you cant pull the clutch arm up anymore?

    i'm not sure if the bracket is bent at all... but the clutch arm should definitely move up enough to allow you to slide the cable in.

    I'd bet money that the little holder fell out of the firewall. Put it back in, lock it into place, and everything should fit just fine.

    were does the cable hook to the shift fork on top of the bell looking thing, on it or below it? it's like the cable is not long enough. the bracket is the same one that came out the DA:confused:
