Question about 2000 Suzuki GZ 250 Marauder
Well.. you can just buy a new choke cable? if youre having trouble sourcing a choke cable then get a universal one from ebay? and yes you can change the carb, just make sure it has the same fittings ect, and ebay is a haven for bike parts!

To change the choke cable, you don't have to disassemble the carb but you may have to take it off the engine. The black plastic piece simply screws into the side of the carb. Once out, you'll have to take the plunger and spring off and put it on your new cable. Then screw the new cable into the hole. Reinstall the the carb on the bike. Always replace the carb seal on the intake where the carb plugs into it. Good Luck

Testimonial: "could not see scewed piece till carb removed. easy when you know how before hand.thanks for your help,much appreciated."
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!! "
