Anyone has faced this issue?
Just ensure that the cable is properly lubricated and doesn't have 90 degree or more tight bends between the accelerator and the carb.
Normally the cable snaps at the accelerator end. Perhaps, the newer cables with the L shaped steel guide would help things for you.

Yes, cable is having 90 degree bend at handle end and broke at this end every time.
Mine is the short handle bar model. Need to check, if newer cables with L shaped guide (like Japanese bike) suits the short length of old model.

It suits. The shape of handle bars dont affect the suitability, except for the length (The thuderbird/lightning/RD handle bars would need longer cables).
And FYI, these cables are OE parts from RE, not some random Japanese ones.
Infact, the initial batches of Thunderbird (AVL) suffered from acute clutch cable snaps, because of the same reason.

Thanks to @Majumdarda and his dedicated thread on his Amun-Ra (Royal Enfield Bullet 500 : "Amun-Ra") which inspired me lot to own a bull again.

Presently waiting for registration number so have clocked 300+ only, will share detailed review after first service.

Congrats mate on the B500. This is the beauty of RE motorcycles it makes one come back to them again and again. I am sure you must have got an awesome deal on your 2009 CI Bullet 350 which happens to be the last batch of CI engines from RE.

Enjoy your B500 and keep posting your experiences.

Congratulations Vishal. Would be very useful if you could share your reasoning for selling away the CI and going with a UCE.
Cheers and happy riding..

Thank you Navin!
Yes I was getting good deals on CI however I decided to give it to a friend with no loss no profit deal.

Thank you Deepak!

Actually I sold CI 350 long back when I purchased Thar but kept this thread open because there was bullet somewhere in heart and I was sure that it will come back.

Selling CI was stupid impulsive decision. Now I feel that I could have kept it but no worry as it is replaced with better practical option and I am enjoying every bit.
