Just wondering if there is any aftermarket suggestions for a clutch cable ? Or should I just get the OEM stock replacement ?
I fucked up when changing to aftermarket levers and didn't check for a spacer from the stock levers. So my clutch cable was rubbing against the metal. It's frayed at the top , so I am just going to go ahead and replace it , as that's the last part I want to break while riding.

Stock replacement is only like $30. I'd go with that. I don't see that being a part that aftermarket would make better without going with some more expensive metal that would double or triple the price.
Had that same issue with some imported levers on a Kawi. Frayed clutch cable didn't make sense with so few miles. Found a small but significant machining error on lever which was sawing into cable. I'm advising you to very closely inspect the operation of the cable when it's placed in lever. Also I use waterproof wheel bearing grease on all lever pivot points and cable ends where cable is exposed from perch.
