Wrong Clutch Cable?

Is this the wrong cable end for my clutch fork?
It is a new clutch fork AND cable.
Do I need to get a different cable or is there an adapter?
Thanks

You REALLY want a Ford cable. They’re much more resilient and smoother. I believe Mike Forte has a special pricing on 2 cables for a great price.

When the cable is properly adjusted, is there any play in the pedal?

I adjust so there is just the slightest bit of play at the pedal.

In any case, I'd highly recommend the cable that has a barrel adjuster on the fork end, if in the event that your cable snaps you won't need to pry the fork with a rod to get it in
