ZX3 Shift Cable Problems

I posted here about a month ago about my shift lever popping out of gear and being able to pop the bottom of the lever back into the shift cable to momentarily fix the problem. However, i have just been able to take the center counsel apart for the first time to get a good look at it. So it looks like the plastic round end of the shift cable is the weak spot in my problem.

So my question is, is there a way to switch out that plastic part, or would i have to completely replace the whole cable its self? I have looked around for a little bit, and it seems that the cables are replaceable without getting too much into it (only bending the heat shield a little to get the cable though the firewall and remove the air intake as well)
