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.
