    Powervalve cable doesnt stay in housing?

    The powervalve cable seems to pop out of the rave case mount, it is as if the cable has been put in at a negative angle to the wire pops out. Managed to fix it a few days ago but after a day of riding it seems its popped out, should i get a whole new kit, or just a powervalve cable or rave case mount? Any suggestions would be good as i dont want to take it to a mechanic to be ripped off

    If the cable is popping out it would seem to me that the spring isn't able to do its job by pushing the rave valve back in. Therefore I would believe that you need to pull out your valve and clean it.
    I mentioned you need a better mechanic because you said you didn't want to be ripped off. If you aren't able to competently do the work required then the mechanic isn't ripping you off, you're paying someone for the skills that they learnt while working for shit wages during their apprenticeship (generally 4 years at less than a burger technician's pay).
    Good luck.
