The clutch cable ends up into a cable head that is attached to a hole in the lever.
When you use the lever the cable head shall turn in the hole, to keep a straight line to the cable.
If the cable head is to tight in the hole and do not move at all, there will be a bending of the cable just by the cable head. The cable is prone to fatigue and after some time it will break.

The advice is to lubricate the cable head and the lever hole.
Stefan,
After reading what you wrote I looked closely that the area where the cable is retained in the lever, and what you found made sense. I could watch the cable and squeeze and release the lever and see what the cable was doing. There were times it was binding right there and causing the "crunchy" feeling I was experiencing. I'm going to see if I can lube it, and perhaps find a way to add relief or a guide in that area so it always stays lined up.

I Ride: 2013 Hyperstrada
This just happened to me a few minutes ago on my way home from the store. I limped it back running a few stop signs along the way. My bike has 6270 miles on it.
My nearest dealership is really far and has a month long backlog so I'm changing it myself.
What is a good place to order a replacement?

Just go to the Dealer.. they're cheap and not back ordered currently.

My '13 clutch cable is getting pretty crunchy at 17,000 km (10,500 mile), so I'm precautionary changing it with the latest greatest Ducati offering p/n 73210431E.

I'm also researching converting the bike to hydraulic clutch actuation using only Ducati parts as well.. but, that won't happen for a little bit.

The hydraulic clutch sounds like an ambitious project - good luck!

I ordered the cable from DucatiOmaha. I found that searching this forum.
I ordered a spare too. I got the E version.

Lube the top piece (ferrule?) - knock on wood -20k mies and fine. I carry a spare, and I think the main trick to swapping ( besides fiddly routing - is a small clamp holding the cable housing - I think it's below the black plastic piece on the right side.

Google the part number that zibbut posted and see which website you like best :-)

I Ride: was Monster soon Hyperstrada
I just replaced my cable yesterday at 6200 miles. Cable was starting to go. Did the air filter at the same time. Now that was a pain.

Theoretically a rough breakdown of what you'd need to convert the bike to hyd clutch is;

-Master Cylinder w/microswitch (preferably from either a Monster, Multistrada due to microswitch wiring)
-Clutch line (preferably from a Monster 1200 or possibly custom built unit)
-Clutch Slave Cylinder w/3 bolts (from either a Monster 1200, Multistrada 1200 or Panigale)
-Slave Cylinder Anti Rotation insert (from Monster 1200, Multistrada 1200)
-Clutch Actuation Push Rod (from Monster 1200)
-Clutch Actuation Control Pin (from Monster 1200)
-Generator Cover Complete (from Monster 821 or 1200)
-Clutch Cover Complete (from Monster 1200)
-Pinion Sprocket Cover (from Monster 1200)

What I don't know is if the Control Pin from the Monster/Multi will work with the Hyper's clutch pressure plate, or whether the length of the Push Rod will be enough to properly engage/disengage the Slipper clutch. If anyone wants to donate money, I'll make my bike a test dummy
