Hmmm...any pics?...as long as you have the right cable and you've already mounted it on the fender (via the bracket) it should be ok..do you have an adjustable cable(and or firewall adjuster)?..because they have plenty of slack that can be with the nuts on the end of the clutch fork..

If you have too much at the clutch fork the other end may not be hooked on the quadrant.

The cables are rather long as long as you have it routed right it shouldn't make much of a difference.

That is a good point about the quadrant..if you still have the stock self adjusting plastic quadrant I recommend swapping it out now for an aftermarket one..those also come with single,double,or triple hooks to suite your needs!..

do you have an multi hook quadrant?on the pedal way up under the dash(hard to see).if you do then you need to move where your cable is hooked.i have a triple quadrant so i have 3places on my pedal i can hook the cable.

that is android?so what your saying is your going to the full site?if you are(i could be wrong) but it may be difficult to upload on the browser.its probably possible but im just not sure.i only use the app except when im playing with my garage/profile.if you go to the app martket and verify that u downloaded it.if you hit the menu button there should be a my apps tab to see if u have it.if you are using the app hit the menu button and it should have a attachments tab.if u can get the app i highly recomend.
