You might be right WireSpokes. I took my cable to the hardware store and tried many different sizes. I think that several would have worked well enough, but I went with the 7/16-inch diameter because it had a nice close fit to the knurled screw head and metal end fitting on the cable sleeve (a solid/fixed support point) and
then spread a decent amount of lateral support to the sleeve above that end fitting (which is where the kink happens).
An extra thick heat-shrink wrap tube (or a few layers) crossing the usual kink point would probably work too. But SST's fuel line idea and this spring can be moved to make cable adjustments - I think shrink tube would have to be removed
, replaced, cables adjusted, then shrunk again to get the same job done.
