Not sure how many miles you have on it, but I just turned 30k miles on mine. Still on the original cable, but like you I carry a spare and check the original from time to time.
I lube it with Dupont chain lube, about every other fill up and as far as I can tell its as good as new.
You sure yours is routed correctly, not at a strange angle or something crazy?
