Defective Gen3 Clutch Cable

With only 10,000miles, my clutch cable is frayed and 1/4 of the narrow wires that make up the cable have now snapped (where it connects with the lever).

Bike is still under warranty - does anyone know if this is a warranty issue?

Also, has anyone had this problem or heard of it as an issue with the Gen3?

Found the answer - this is a Gen3 defect and covered under warranty. Here's what it looks like, so if your cable has wear, you may want to get it replaced before it breaks:

Thanks Bloo - I'm calling Honda East Toledo in the morning. $22 is good price, and they apparently ship within 3 days.
