    Gen2 clutch cable position behind radiator

    I was giving the bike a good wash, looking it over and noticed the clutch cable resting against the back side of the radiator. I know esso_sa brought this up before in the General chat back in 2020 about the Gen2 bike clutch cable positioning and wondering if any others were concerned about it resting against the radiator? Just seems odd, at least to me, that a cable would rest freely against the radiator instead of being routed/secured in a better position.

     Thanks Smithy. Yeah I might swing by the dealership this week and see what they have to say.
