Cables/Lines around Headstock - Wear & Tear


Recommended Posts

Hello good people,

I have now had some time to carry out a cursory cleaning of my 2013 Zongshen ZS125-48a (a vintage year for Zongshen ZS125-48as, I believe).

The protective covers around the electric cables and the throttle cable have perished and been worn where they come into contact with the headstock.

In the bicycle world, we put rubber grommets around brake and gear cables to obviate this problem. Is that also common practice in the motorbike world? Is this just a consequence of poor maintenance allied with cheap materials?

I'm assuming that it will be relatively simple to obtain replacement covers for these. The actual lines where they are now in contact with the headstock do not exhibit any signs of wear themselves.

Many thanks,


Edit - I forgot to include the link to the kind of thing I think I need to replace it with: https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product/341/category/66
