SOURCE: how to change the choke cable on a yamaha fazer

choke cables normaly last for ever, so it prob needs just a bit of oil. remove upper end of cable, tape a cone on it and pour some 20/50 into it. if it is broken, observe the set up and replace.

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.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info. The original problem was the bike would idle okay, but stall as soon as gas was applied, I suspected a gas flow problem. I shotgunned a bunch of things including new petcock value filter in tank, taking carb off and cleaning jets, float bowl, and various orifices, replaced intake manifold (thought it could be a vacuum leak from some cracks seen), plus some other things I'm probably forgetting. Each change seemed to fix problem for a while, but it would always return (problem was always intermittent). Recently I noticed just moving the choke cable (without changing choke setting) was causing bike idle to change, then it died hard and would not start again after I fiddled with cable a bit - tried ether, etc. Since it fired right up after taking choke cable off I ordered a new one, still waiting for it, hopefully that'll fix it. I couldn't find anyway to adjust choke cable though manual debug section claims it can mis-adjusted. If this still fails I'll probably take the carb off again and try cleaning again. Been an intermittent thorn in my side for a while now. Thanks for the suggestions!! "

I'm trying to change the choke cable on my xt 125 but I can't get it out of the carb. Any idea how to remove and replace cable?


Hi, Duncan thanks for the picture really helps I would try a little carb cleaner spray on the choke valve to loosen it up and then some needle nose pliers on the cable if that doesn't work you may need to dip the whole thing in a small one quart bucket of carb cleaner you can pick up at any auto parts store comes with a little basket just follow mfg instructions I usually let them soak over night for more information about your question and valuable free downloads that you will need please visit the websites below.

Choke stuck yamaha tt r125 lwet


Hi is it your choke cable? replace it if it is.
If its the choke plunger on the carb you need to remove the carb and remove the plunger or yamaha calls it starter set and clean the inside where it attaches usually it will hve some oxidation deposits in there so it good time to clean the whole carb what i use is a carb cleaner called brand name (Sea Foam) does a great job.

I can't pull my choke completely out


Most likely there is crud inside the carb where the plunger goes in,OR the cable just needs to be lubed. Take the cable off,and clean the carb where the plunger goes in,and use some cable oil,or 3n1 oil and oil the cable.

Need to change choke cable on a 2005 yamaha viagra, 250 cc not sure how to do this


Remove the Phillips head screw under your choke lever and retrieve the wave washer and other small parts there. The cable, with a large trunnion swaged here will come away from the lever.
The Carb end is more difficult... You can opt to remove the fuel tank, pump, cable bellcrank bracket (screwed to the top of the carb) for better access. If your fingers are small enough you might try without so nuch removal but your objective is to unscrew a hexagonal connector that holds the cable/spring and choke plunger in the carb.
Pull back the dustboot over the cable and you'll see it.
You should be able to use an open end wrench to loosen it then use fingetips to unscrew it, take care when removing the whole lot from the carb- the spring and choke plunger sit on the end of the cable held only by a small 3mm swage. remove these parts from the cable and pull the cable out through its guides along the frame. Assembly is the reverse. I hope this helps

The choke do'nt seem to work, the cable closes nothing I can see leave it set a few days and you have to start it 4 or 5 times, I have a haynes manul, but it do'nt show much about the choke , I would like...


Hello and welcome to Fixya, The Gl1500 choke is operated by a cable. There are 2 plunger type chokes, 1 for each carb, the cable is attached to a bracket and when you operate the choke the lever opens or closes the plungers. So we're looking at either a broken cable, or stuck or partially stuck plungers. So first thing you should check is your cable, remove the choke lever assembly from your handlebar and remove the choke cable, try pulling the cable with your hand, if it comes all the way out, you will be needing a new cable. 2. If the plungers are stuck, this is a very time consuming job and I would suggest a Honda Technician do it unless you are mechanically inclined and want to tackle the job yourself (which will save you quite a bit). You mentioned the Haynes manual, there ok but they don't go into great detail like a factory Honda manual. Which you can purchase threw your dealer or maybe even cheaper on Ebay. But regardless if its the cable that's broke or the plungers, your going to have to get in deep to repair either one. I have done hundreds of these Goldwings and would be happy to try and guide you as you go threw the process, but I suggest getting a Factory manual as well. Just a guess, but your total repair cost + manual less than $100 if you do it yourself. If the dealer does it, depending on your location, could be upwards $400+. But either way call your dealer and ask them for a quote, you may get a great deal if there slow and need the work. Anyway I hope this helps you some, I will be happy to assist you any time just let me know. Thanks for your time, and thanks for using Fixya. Have a great day :) Cycleworx157
