Hello. I've noticed that the clutch cable of my 1982 Honda CM450E is too close to the exhaust pipe causing the cable to melt. I noticed it after a while so the heat has only melted the outer plastic layer leaving the a medal mesh exposed. I plan on putting some electrical tape on it in order to cover the exposed area but then it occurred to me that it would also melt. Is there a heat shield or something closely related to keep my cable from melting? I was thinking of putting a small metal spring near the melted area in order to keep the plastic from touching the exhaust pipe but then the metal spring would also touch the pipe thus heating the spring which would again cause my cable to most likely start melting slowly again. Am I overthinking this problem and would a small spring work or is there an actual product that would protect my clutch cable from the heat of the exhaust pipe? I appreciate any pointers someone can give me!!
