I Ride: 2009 R1200RT/2013 Hyperstrada
Can't say whether mine had the plastic sleeve or not, the end of the cable was what broke and fell out. Interestingly, the bike had been in for it's 30,000km tune about a month ago and nothing was mentioned about clutch cable issues. Bike was manufactured in Mar/13.

Turns out Ducati Omaha found one closer to home and shipped a few days ago. Should have it in my hands by Tuesday, about 8 days after ordering.

Now I just have to snake it in there!

May I ask where you've taken your HS, do you camp, do you put everything in the panniers or have other luggage?
I'm a camper in New England. My set up is like this:

I put heavier stuff in the panniers to keep the cg as low as possible. This includes tools, tire repair and pump, lithium jumper... I also put my cooking stuff there including an axe for firewood. This still leaves 1/2 of each pannier free for food etc..

I got a Kwik Tek Dry Pak Waterproof Duffel Bag 35l for about
$35.00. It's durable and has a rigid bottom (that's what she said..). I use it for the tent, sleeping bag, inflatable pad, rain suit, clothes, one of those tiny rei camp chairs, and a waterproof dry bag. (SealLine Multi-Purpose Dry Bags) or other boating companies make this stuff - cheap and durable.

I use 4 rok straps to hold it down. It only needs 2, but if I want to take off a layer, or buy food and put it in the waterproof dry bag, I just unclip 2 straps and attach the stuff. The main bag stays anchored. Saves some time and adds flexibility.

I also have a Nelson Rigg CL-1010 tank bag- small cheap (though the price seems to have gone up) and holds what I need up front.

Hope this helps.
