There is a pin at the pivot point of the lever - it is threaded. Unscrew that, pull it out, the old lever will come out easily. Replace with the new one, screw the pivot pin back in - I would put a dab of threadlock on before you screw it in.

The choke doesn't seem to be working on my 2004 suzuki gs500f. When I pull the choke lever out it doesnt seem to affect the mixture of the carbs at all. There is no change in the rpms. The cable is...

The choke cable actuates a plunger within the carburetor body. Pull out the choke and look at the choke circuit. If either the plunger has varnish (old gas) or the choke circuit is blocked with varnish, the choke will not work. Also, I wonder if the choke circuit is giving too much fuel and someone leaned the carbs out to compensate: check the rubber portion of the choke plunger, is it worn? What are the color of the spark plugs? They should be a tan color; if they're black, you are too rich or may be burning oil.

Front brake lever spongy,not operating brake ebs hh brake pads fitted.

Gravity bleed front brake. no lever pumping. Looden cap on master cylinder, front wheen straight ahead, open bleeder and watch for air being expelled. When only fluid is coming out, close bleeder. Expect the front pads totake a few miles to seat, They will improve as they wear in. Good Luck / be safe.
