Look for kinks by the gas tank. Often when you route the cable through the tank it hits or gets pinched by the wires and such under the tank, also make sure your cable does not make any sharp bends. You want to maintain no less than a 6 in. radius in the cable to prevent any sticking.

Won't idle without choke on


check for vacuum leak and spark plug wires firing ordered. use a bottle of propane around the intake seal to check for leaks there (if you have a leak at the seal the engine will surge near the leak)

After I fixed a fuel line leak on my 01 v92 deluxe I can't get the bike to start. I put the full choke on and it will run for a few seconds and die. After that no matter where I put the choke it...


You probably either have too much gas or not enough.
If there is too much, the plugs will be wet, and you need to burn it off.
The full choke should not be kept on long, and you could also have an over flowing needle and seat in the carb.
If there is not enough gas, then you could still have a bad needle and seat, but could also have a bad fuel filter, bad tank vent, of you have water in the tank.

My choke won't stay on. it keeps sliding back in to its normal position & i have to hold the choke out until it warms up.


If you look at the choke cable just behind the knob that you pull out, you'll see a round knurled knob. If you tighten this knob, it increases the tension on the cable. However, if someone has put a lubricant on the cable, it may not do any good.

Good Luck

How to change out a choke cable on 2001 barley fxd


To change the choke cable, you must take the carb off the engine. Remove the air filter and backing plate. Take the nut off the backside of the choke cable and let the cable come out of the bracket that holds it. Make sure the petcock is turned off and disconnect the fuel hose at the carb. Loosen the throttle and idle cable at the handlebar throttle assembly. Pull the carb out of the intake manifold seal. Work the throttle and idle cables out of their positions in the carb. Bring the carb with the choke cable out and away from the engine. Take the choke cable out of the carb with a 14mm open end wrench. Take the plunger and spring off the old cable and swap it to the new cable and reinstall the choke cable. Put the throttle and idle cables back onto the carb, put a new intake manifold seal on the intake manifold and push the carburetor back into the new seal. Put the choke cable in it's bracket and secure the nut. Be careful and do not over tighten the nut as the plastic cable housing will break. Reconnect the fuel line, the vacuum line, and anything else that was taken off. Replace the air filter backing plate and the air cleaner. Readjust the throttle and idle cables making sure that the throttle operates freely and returns when let go on it's own. Never put any kind of lubricant on the choke cable. There is a knurled wheel that you can use to tighten the cable so that it stays where you put it.

I have a yamaha kodiak 4x4 400. Rebuilt the carb, new plug, etc. Problem was it would only run on full choke. Problem still persists. Carb is getting fuel fine. Not sure what else to do.


Check that the intake manifold is not cracked or separated, extra air might cause you to need the choke. Some times the first carburetor cleaning does not do the trick. Take the carburetor off again, take out the slow jet, and shoot through it with cleaner to make sure it is clear. Now shoot through the passageway of the body and make sure that the body of the carburetor is clear . When all passageways in the body are clear then reassemble and put it back on. If the air screw is set correctly you should have a machine that idles.

1995 Yamaha XV 250 Virago Is there a need to adjust the choke (start) cable? If so, how is it adjusted. I think I'm having a problem with my choke and was planning to replace the cable and starter...


The problems with a plunger style choke happen when the rubber on the bottom becomes deformed and does not seal or the spring does not push the plunger down hard enough, or the cap breaks so the plunger is not pushed down hard enough. If you put your finger over the hole and the bike runs properly your bike is running on choke. You have to block the hole deep inside the carb to shut off the choke. I assume the original problem was that the bike would not idle .If this is the case, take the carb apart remove the slow jet and clean the jet and the carb body out so fuel will flow at idle. This should fix your no idle problem.
