While you're checking for wear at the radiator, you might also want to look a couple inches behind to make sure the cable isn't impinging on the radiator fan - the cable is pressed pretty firmly against the shroud. There is a thread here where it was actually blocking the radiator fan, causing overheating. You can look through the frame on the right side to see this on the F, I assume also on the naked.

Thanks Tony,
I just checked mine at 400k's and it has started to rub, I have slipped a piece over it and using a cable tie, hooked it away from the radiator.

Thank you Tonyt. My bike has 250 miles and chafing was evident. Tie-wrapped it up about 1/4 inch, also filed a little on the radiator casting that caused the damage. There is enough material there to remove the sharpness in case tie wrap fails.

Above the point it was being damaged, on the radiator mounting bracket. Not too tight, and I checked cable moving the bars to both sides. It's what I did anyway, along with filing a little on that sharp edge.

Zip tie is on the radiator mount, doesn't affect the fairings. However, if you don't want to zip-tie, slit a short length of fuel hose and wrap around the cable where it passes over the radiator.
