The pinch bolt sounds like a good solution.
I found an old Honda MX clutch arm in my parts box and I'm hoping to adapt its hinged cable nipple holder to the GTM throttle when I get a bit more time.

More on the parasitic drain.......
Had the dash out once more to fix the speedo (again) and so I had another root around the tracker.
Removed the TomTom receiver and aerial but when I disconnected the tracker control box the starter wouldn't turn......so that's what at least one of the relays controls.
Wires go all over the place from the tracker control unit and they are all black so difficult to trace.
My latest plan is to identify the permanent 12v feed and replace it with an ignition controlled feed. That way I can leave the box in place ,it will still do its relay thing when I switch the ignition on and so let the starter engage, car starts, happy days!
I'll keep you posted..............

Nightmare…

On the subject of security, my car has the passive immobiliser. When you turn the ignition off, even to pay for petrol, it immobilises requiring much fumbling around with the fob and locking/unlocking the car to bring to life again. Very irritating. I have details of someone who can re-program it to be off until I want it on. Must get it sorted.

I feel your pain. I'm not a big fan of immobilisers either having had to be recovered soon after I bought my Spyder due to it not disarming. Mine had two, a "Toad" and the Rover 5AS. I've at least ditched the 5AS now by having a K-maps ECU remap that turned off the need for handshaking so now only the Toad to touch each time I start. Fortunately that has worked without issue so far.
