Has the stock clutch cable got a steel 90 degree bend at the handlebar end? Maybe 47X or 1GE specific? A lot of vendors on EBay are selling them with a bend, and the 1GE parts list pictorially shows this as well, but the cable routing diagrams show a straight cable without the bend. I guess the bend is not correct as the best routing is round the RH side of the headstock.....
Anybody? :???:

It is straight. My 1GE bike has a straight cable. I have several cables here and they are all straight.

Thanks Silverstrom for the confirmation. I’m glad I have already bought a straight one (albeit pattern) but genuine new ones are currently on back order in the UK. Rgds.
