Short radius turns in the cable will aggrevate the friction 
problem.  Some time ago I bought a new choke cable which seemed to 
have some extra length.  To "clean up" the engine bay a bit I ran it 
under the (LHD) master cylinder bracket and forward under the body 
cowl.  Friction drag in the cable was intollerable.  So I cut it 
shorter and took a more direct route with larger bends, and it works fine.
