    To everyone with 1st gen who is about to route the motion Pro cable,do yourself a favour: DO NOT route it as i did!DON'T route it through the guide,it's that sh*t #3 seen here: http://www.ronayers.com/Fiche/TypeID...50SX_SY_SK1_K2.
    That thing is only for the ignition switch's harness and nothing else.
    Of course me,like a champion smartass,I routed it through the right eye.Result:the friction between the cable and the guide cut the plastic in 2 pieces.I rerouted it and put duct tape over it..Not too cool but it protects the metal inside.

        Go forward along inside of the frame and out through hole between frame rails and steering head. On 1st gen this is between frame and water overflow bottle. From here just turn left and connect cable to clutch perch/lever.
        The cable's plastic cover is worn because it touches and rubs the iron vertical part of the cable guide hole(the hole where the throttle cables and ignition harness are routed according to the manual).
        Do you route the mp cable through the cable guide hole or from the outside?

            Yes,I know,fewer parts etc...
            So you just cut the vertical piece with a grinder or hacksaw?
            Post a pic if you have one.

              Don't think we talking same thing. I am thinking of that wire bolted to frame.
              You got picture of your?

                Yes,the wire bolted to the frame vertically,that's where the mp cable is rubbing against.

                That wire,the frame neck and the frame tubes form the hole(cable guide) where the throttle cables and ignition harness pass through.
                That's where I routed my mp cable and the cover was worn for about 5cm.

                Do you guys cut that wire or you route the cable from outside that wire?
                Pics tomorrow.

                    All right ,here are all the pics.I rerouted the cable and it doesn't touch the bolted cable guide.From engine side and up I number the points point1,point2 etc,all the way to the steering head.
                    Point1.I put cable first under frame spacer and then turned up over the hose between tstat and rear cylinde so it doesn't go near the temp sensor on the other side.
                    Correct?

                      Point2 and Point2 right view show it better:

                            Now,the crucial part,Point5.I routed it between the metal bracket bolted to the frame,where the stock fairing bolts as well.It touches of course but it doesnt move of rub,so it would be ok I suppoose,right?
                            You guys route it there also?
                            See Point5,Point5 side view and Point5 top view:

                              I go under hose and under frame cross member. Basically lower down.

                                What do you think?

                                Also I thought of this proposed alternative,see pic,red line.
                                Cable still goes between bottle and frame buit doesnt go from the right of the frame tube pointed,but from the left.This way some cable length will be gained.
                                Anyone tried this?
