I am about to do it on the lemans 5. Just have to source the two lever setups for the PHMs.At the moment I dont have any choke setup on the bike.It doesnt need it realy.I just twist the throttle a few times when cranking in the cold weather and she always fires up no probs. I do want to fit the levers as the choke should be operational for winter time.

What does the choke look like?

The choke is connected to the back of the carb, it closes off the air supply to produce an overly rich fuel mixture to aid starting, if it has a choke ( not all engines do ) there will be a mechanical arm clearly marked on the side of the carb, lawn mowers will normally have the choke operation on the throttle lever, if there is no choke decak on the throttle lever the engine may well have a reb primer button on the carb, or an automatic choke if not.

Weed eater xt 260 choke lever is broken...can it be replaced easily

It is not listed as a replacement part on the carburetor. You would have to remove the choke plate, and the choke shaft from the carburetor. These parts are press-fitted into the carb housing and the choke lever is also press fitted onto the choke plate shaft.

It runs good but can't get it to start in cold weather. What should I do 85 Suzuki gs 550.

Without much other information of what has been done, I would start with the choke system. The choke cable may be detached or far out of adjustment. With a helper see if you can watch the choke cable move the choke lever on the carbs when you move the choke lever to full choke. Cables do break and or stretch. If that is the case then reconnect, replace, or adjust as necessary. If the choke lever and carb choke system is moving correctly then the problem may be in the carburators themselves.

Good Luck

I just bought a 2001 Yamaha R6 and the choke cable is there but not installed the cable just hangs. Does any one know how to fix the choke cable on a 2001 Yamaha r6 ?

hi, this is the best way to replace the choke cable, first remove the riders seat, 2 alun key bolts at the rear of the seat turn up the corners of the seat and you will find the bolts,
undo the tank fiking screws at the front of the tank and then prop up the fuel tank , remove the air box by undoing the 10mm bolt in the front of the airbox, then undo the clip/clips holding the airbox rubbers to the carburetors, lift of the airbox, now you will see the carburettors and the location of the choke cable sliding mechanisam,

undo from the handlebar the left hand switch unit and pull the 2 halfs apart you will then be able to remove the nipple of the old cable from the opperating lever, replace the new cable using a small amount of grease on the new nipple,then thread the new cable through the frame following the exact same route as the old cable and connect it to the carbs and check the opperation of the choke lever, pulling it on and off making sure when the choke is off that you have a small amount of frree play in your cable and the lever on the carb end is all the way home, if you are happy you havereplaced the control cable correctly, you can then reasemble the airbox, lower the tank and replace the seat, finaly recheck the operation of the controls before riding the machine on the road, regards, paul

Have a 1982 Honda CB650SC NightHawk and had the carbs off and know the choke won't work.when you when you try to turn the choke off it's like the cable is

Check the routing of the choke cable and, basically, make sure it does not get kinked or pulled tight when the handlebars are turned from side to side. Then, remove any excess free play in the cable by turning the adjustment fitting that's part of the cable. You want it so that the choke mechanism on the carburetors begins to move as soon as the handlebar mounted choke lever is moved. If the cable is worn worn - or broken - replace it.

Thottle will no stay in one position. There is a black spacer that slides over the throttle shaft between the shaft an the leaver. Will a new leaver come with that black spacer. Blower model wt200

Three (3) possible carbs were available on your machine.
If you have:
Walbro model WT-606 carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071726 and choke lever kit part #530071725.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11 carb, the choke AND throttle levers are BOTH a part of the carb itself. (Would need a whole carb to get your part.) Complete carb part #530071465.

If you have:
ZAMA model C1Q-W11C carb, the choke and throttle levers are available in kit form (which leads me to believe the spacer comes with them). Throttle lever kit part #530071715 and choke lever kit part #530071716.

Hope this helps.
