I checked my clutch cable today while installing a new lever and found this..... I know it needs to be replaced asap but I think I can still ride with it, til I get a new cable soon.
What would I have to do to prevent this from happening to the new cable?
Thanks!

wow seriously never seen that before. looks like it would take a serious chemical burn or flame to do that.

Its running under the right mids. I never touch/move/checked it until yesterday. I don't know if the dealer or previous owner moved it or anything.
I'll try to take pics of it and maybe with the fairing off.

I bought the bike used from a stealership.... Yeah it must've got re-routed by previous owner... I'm gonna check the manual for where the cable should be and if I can't did nothing I'll come back to this thread. Thanks all!!!
Should I just avoid riding the bike until I get it replaced then? Or am I gonna be safe riding it for 25 miles work commute?

You'll be fine. The cable should hold, and if it does break, like Nico said- you'll be alright. I've had 3 clutch cables go on me mid-ride before, 2 on my '79 Kawasaki and one on my '03 RR, and it's been very manageable. I actually had to ride the '03 45 miles home completely clutchlessly...
...which is not advisable, but it's definitely possible. I felt like I was shooting Old Yeller. Poor bike...

It fared well in the end.
