I got a new choke cable for the 1220 and am wondering how to route it "properly".

The old one was fairly short and simply sat on top of the engine shroud as it crossed over to the right side. That works well and makes for bends with very large radii. The problem with doing the same thing is that the new cable has a plastic covering over the sheath, and I'm afraid the heat from the engine will melt it.

Any other route to the carb requires a sharp "Z" turn to get around the engine.

Am I over-thinking this?

Cables with the plastic covering the cable casing may be affected by the heat cosmetically, but the cable will still operate.

Some cable assemblies have a plastic lining inside the cable casing. ...When subjected to high heat, the plastic melts and binds the inner cable.

Looking at the end of your cable, you can see if there is an inner plastic liner.
