Is there anyone out there that can maybe help me with some tricks to replace my complete cable. I'd Rather not pull the motor, but I cant get my hands up into where i need to remove the 2 10mm bolts to get into the clutch housing. to connect that end of the cable

It's nothing special. Just reach under the u-joint boot from the right side of the bike and you can feel them. A ratcheting box end wrench will make it quicker job. If the rear tire's off the bike you will have a wide open shot at 'em, but like I said, just reach under the boot and there they are. If you still can't get to them, you can pull the battery and go in from the left side.
