With the fairing on, the snug fitting examples and mine as well don't allow for changing the cable without removing the fairing. Mine is glued on with pro seal.
Without the fairing, change the cable as often as you like, however, with properly fitted tubing guides and maybe an occasional spray of lubricant to inhibit corrosion on the short exposed length, changing the cable, for me, is a lo-o-o-ng ways down the road. After 13 years flying my -7A, I'm not even considering replacement.
