Exclamation Mixture control cable-exhaust pipes

Has anyone run into this issue and how did you resolve it? Photos would be great!

After installing the Air Flow 390 bracket kit I noticed that rubber coated mixture control cable is literally laying directly on top of the exhaust pipe a short distance from the bracket plate. The heat from exhaust pipe will quickly cause an issue with the rubber coated control cable. Additionally if the cable is bent upward 90 deg to avoid the hot exhaust pipe in this short space, I anticipate the bend will cause the control cable to bind and hard to operate.

Note the my exhaust pipes are standard from Vans, not the optional Vetterman pipes like I believe Chris Moon has on his RV14A in this thread.

Sorry I was unable to load a photo.
