Cables are among the most important spare parts. You should carry a spare set on your scooter and you should also keep a spare set in your garage at home. Snapped cables are an annoyance on every excursion. Cables which are hard to pull take their toll on the nerves and tendons. Frayed cables have to be replaced. For this reason, whether it is a restoration or annual service, replacing the cables on a regular basis is recommended.
