"Brake noodles" for better clutch/throttle cable clearance

Sometimes, depending on your set-up, it's hard to get proper clearance with your clutch or throttle cable.  A brake noodle might solve that problem.

Bairdco attached a brake noodle to his clutch cable so that it clears his rear exhaust.  You can get brake noodles at a local bike shop, or you might be able to get one off of an old brake system. 

Using a brake noodle may also make the clutch easier to operate, similarly to how the clutch pulley works.
