Baling wire (and/or a small-size nylon wire tie) does work. BTDoingT.
For those of us who have not already broken the plastic retainer for
the end of the throttle-cable, I'd suggest two things:
(1) check the throttle cable length (adjuster) to make sure that when
the throttle pedal is fully depressed the cable has enough slack to
avoid overstressing the retainer--yet keeping it adjusted to assure
that WOT is attained.
(2) apply a wrap (or two) of wire or nylon tie to reinforce that
plastic cable-end holder _before_ it breakes.
