How is the housing wound?

You want a longitudinally wound housing with a sheathed inner wire, not the usual tight spiral wound.
The spiral wound cables do not pull as smoothy as a longitudinally wound cable.
The sheathed inner wire is a slippery plastic.

IDK, one would have to ask Lowbrow. I was looking at their sale pages and that item stood out.

Default clutch cable

You might want to check the length on the clutch cable. Part # 38619-57A calls foe a length of 60 1/2" long in the parts book.
