Cable Rattle Fix

Speedster 10 2018 model.

I’ve just started servicing the bike and noticed that there is gear cable rattle in the open shell on the frame, grommet/endcap one end open on the other, with an exposed cable in the frame.

I was wondering, if from new, the bike had some anti-variation cable set-up, or is there an after-market product for this. I’ve looked at the tube liner, normally used on a frame sealed by a grommet/cable end at both ends, and the anti-vibration foam for cable sleeves. The liner will be susceptible to water/dirt getting in from the open ended shell, and the foam sheathing is meant for a cable sleeve and wears through in time if used on a bare cable.

Appreciate any help you may give.
