SOURCE: replace my enrichment cable 883 sportster

Yes, you must remove the carb to change the cable. Right where the cable goes into the carb, there is a plastic nut deal that screws into the carb. Take the air filter off, take the enricher cable out of it's holder on the left side of the bike, disconnect the throttle and idle cables and the fuel lines, and the carb just pulls right out of the manifold. Use a 14mm wrench to take the cable out. You'll have to take the spring and plunger off of your old cable and put it on the new cable. I'd put a new manifold seal, rubber seal on the manifold where the carb plugs in, if I were you. They have a tendency to create a vacuum leak after they've been run a while and you pull the carb out. They don't cost that much.

Good Luck

It will stall out when at a stop. When taking off I have to roll the trottle back and forth and pop the clutch. after driving the for about 5 miles, then it starts to stall out when stopping and taking...

If your bike is stalling out when the engine is cold, this is typical of a carburetor equipped engine. You need to run a little longer with your enricher on. After it warms up, if it's still stalling out, remove the outer air filter cover and look at the upper right of your carb. There is a screw there. This is the throttle stop screw. Turn it clockwise to increase the idle speed. Set the idle speed when the engine is at full operating temp.

Good Luck

2000 XLH sportster bike starts up and idles right but once you put it in gear and try to ride cuts out and dies

Sounds like you're letting it idle too long with the enricher on. The enricher circuit is VERY rich and it will foul your plugs. When you start the bike, run the enricher only long enough to where you can get the bike to stay running with the throttle grip or throttle lock. Turn that enricher off as quickly as possible. Your plugs are probably fouled.

Good Luck

96 883 sportster with 3000 miles only. Will run only with enrichment knob pulled out when i throttle up it wants to die and spits fuel out carb and pre ignites in carb ran well when was stored not run...

Carbureted Harleys that will only run with the enrichment knob pulled out require a partial disassembly as the slow jet is most like clogged and/or the entire carburetor and fuel system needs to be cleaned &serviced.

2005 sporster 1200 custom running like **** missing cuts off after warming , then will start up and run 5 minutes later?

Sounds like you're fouling your plugs with the enricher. If you leave your enricher on the entire time during the warmup, you may be fouling your plugs. The enricher is very rich so I usually leave the enricher on just long enough to get the engine to where I can keep it running with the throttle grip. Go light with the enricher.

My 1993 chevy silverado spudders when I take off and when I turn the key off it takes a while before it dies

quit running cheap gas in it...most likely you are using a poor octane gas. It probably spark knocks at mid-range speeds too when you are going uphill

2000 passat v6; check engine light+spuddering when accelerating

good chance with that problem you were close most likely a misfire will cause that. it would be either your spark plugs or coil pack. also make sure your vacuum lines are good and air filter is good. also bad gas can cause that problem. the worst outcome would be your throttle body going out on you.
