Throttle Stop Cable

So I went to adjust my idle some, running about 1350 fully warmed up, and my cable is broken. Is there any alternative to replace it with without buying the OEM cable? Not wanting to drop $85 on a new one.

I did check ebay; none used on there. Seems all cost about $80 range for that 6inch cable.

Seems to me you could just bypass the thing with a proper sized bolt....you'd have to adjust the idle with a wrench, but really once you adjust it, you shouldn't need to again. May need a nut to make a stop.
