They make some small wire swirl brushes on very long twisted wire handles I had one that was 4.5 feet long and worked very well cleaning out the throttle cable tube and I also had one for the clutch cable tube also, I used some rust penetrate or diesel fuel to help break things up and get it cleaned out, then used some red can brakeclean to wash it all out.
