They do tend to get brittle from the heat.
Yes, it was broken just behind the back plate, where it comes through the case.
Some days, you could ride along without a problem, then occasionally, it would drop off one cylinder (when the wire shorted on the case). All good now.

It is common to have both wires with cracked insulation. Mine were that way and I used some shrink wrap to insulate them.

Ham handed mechs, when installing the points plate, wouldn't protect the wires in the little recess. The plate would pinch the wires in the bore and the mech would push harder. The mech would then realize (realise for those speaking UK) the problem and then do it right. It only takes a few pinches to get it to this state.
