Had the same issue on my 99 after 3000 miles.... I checked them after reading about it here and sure enough they were hanging by two strands.

The design calls for close maintenance and lubrication.(poor design at that)Easy to R&R though..you should not have a problem. :)

This is a known problem on these bikes. It is poor design. I'm on my third cable and I've tried adjusting that thing all over the place. Nothing seems to help.

I too am in the process of replacing my cable.

It broke on the push side about an inch and a half

from the bottom. I thought mabe their was too much play in the wheel on the carb. Can that wheel be ajusted? Is this where they all break?
