I've changed plenty of cables but never just the knob. Look on the backside and see it there is a locknut. If so, loosen the nut and screw the knob off the cable.

Good Luck

My chock knob won't stay out to Choke the carb. It's hard to start holding the knob out and turning the key and throttle at the sametime

Your choke cable needs some oil and check to see if someone put a big spring on the choke for the return position.

How do you chage a choke knob on a poular chain saw

If the knob is attached to a cable you will need to replace the entire cable which comes with the knob attached. You can just follow the cable and determine how to route the new one and attach it the same as now to the carb.

Where is the choke on a Suzuki marauder

Your choke is a pull out knob located under your tank; it is not a part of the carb. You might be able to trace the cable from the carb to the pull out knob.

Choke knob is very hard to pull? What could be wrong and whats needed to fix?

There is a tension adjusting bezel at the base of the choke knob. Loosen it to free up the choke action. It is a black plastic ring around the choke shaft. If the choke cable itself is not seized up, this should do the trick.

How to replace the choke on a 2000 fxstd

To replace the "choke" on the carb of your 2000 Softail, you much take the carb off the engine. Take the air filter cover, air filter, and air filter backing plate off the engine. Loosen and disconnect the throttle cables and fuel hose. Loosen the nut on the backside of the "choke" knob and take it out of it's slot in the bracket. Twist and pull the carb out of the intake manifold bringing the "choke cable" with it. Once out, use a 14 mm open end wrench to unscrew the cable and plunger assembly. You'll have to swap the spring and plunger from your old cable to the new cable and reinstall in reverse order. Always install a new carb seal where the carb pushes back into the intake. Make sure the throttle works smoothly and snaps shut when you relaease the throttle grip. Never lubricate the "choke" cable. Be careful when tightening the nut on the backside of the cable knob end. The assembly is made of plastic and breaks easily. To adjust the tension on the cable. turn the knurled ring just behind the choke knob.

Good luck

Choke won't open or close

I think your bike has a CV carb which doesn't have a choke.It's called an enrichener. Pulling out the "choke" knob merely dumps more gas into the carb. If the bike starts normally with the knob pulled out, you do not have a problem. On a cold/cool day, pull the knob out and start the bike. If it idles faster than normal the system is working. Pushing the knob in should drop the idle speed, maybe stalling the bike if it is not fully warmend up.

Bike won't stay running

Have the carburators cleaned. this is the first step to ensure there isnt any dirt in the carb.
2nd. Jets should be standar.
3rd. The Fuel/Air screw or knob should be properly set. This is usually 2.5 turns outward from full close. Check for the manual for the proper opening.
4th. Idle knob maybe set too low.
