Small mom and pop shop can get me a new, non OEM throttle cable assembly for $30 or an OEM Yamaha one for $60. Has anyone had any problems with going with a non OEM assembly?

yes l have had problems with non oem cables aswell, my throttle cable frayed in the same area at the carb also. when l got new cable, that damn thing was about 10 to 20mm too short. l had to return it and buy a genuine one...
