The old one looked OK, I lubed it and rode. The new one feels far better, near zero friction. Very good $10 to spend.

I've got one of these in my tool kit under my seat, and my next clutch or throttle cable (whichever goes first) will be made from one of the wires and a couple of the screw-on attachments within it:

Even though they're marketed (by lots of companies) as repair kits and not permanent solutions, I'm going to see how it goes, when the time comes. Just throwing it out there as an idea.
