Take apart the mouse. Unplug the cable. Slide sleeving over the other end.

And hope there isn't a big ass ferrite core around the mouse end of the wire.

I don't know why anybody would want to make the wire on an MX518 stiffer though...

I agree, the G5s are sleeved and I must say I prefer the cable of the MX518 much more.
