Clutch cable bushing:Can this be replaced?

Doing my pre-ride check I found the rubber bushing where the clutch cable connects to the engine, in what I would called a "chewed" state. I think one of the critters that share our property with us went to town on it. Anyone know if they sell these? I would have to replace a perfectly working cable over 1" of rubber bushing.

Ya they sell those - BUT - they come attached to a new cable. Mines broke up too. I don't worry about it.

My brother says the rubber boots that they use for bicycle brakes work. You may try a cycle shop or good 'ol Amazon.
