In order to replace the choke cable, you must take the carburetor off. Start by taking the air filter assembly off the engine, including the backing plate. Then, disconnect the fuel line, drop the choke cable from it's bracket on the left side of the bike, and loosen and disconnect the throttle cables. There is a vacuum line that plugs onto either the back of the carburetor or the intake manifold. Once all this is loose, pull the carb out of the intake seal and guide the choke cable out of with the carb.

Now, that you have the carb out, using a 14mm wrench, unscrew the choke cable where it goes into the carb. You'll have to take the plunger and spring off the old cable and put it on the new cable. The screw it back into the carb.

Reconnect the throttle cables and vacuum lines and install the carb back into the intake using a new intake manifold seal. If you don't replace this seal, you may wind up with a vacuum leak and have running problems. Reinstall the fuel line and air cleaner assembly. Adjust the throttle cables and make sure the carb works correctly. Never lubricate the choke cable. If you do, it will not stay out when you pull it out. There is knurled tension wheel behind the knob when you pull the knob out. Tighten or loosen the tension on the cable with this. Do not over-tighten the big nut on the backside or the cable housing will break,, cheap plastic stuff.

Good Luck
Steve

How to change out a choke cable on 2001 barley fxd


To change the choke cable, you must take the carb off the engine. Remove the air filter and backing plate. Take the nut off the backside of the choke cable and let the cable come out of the bracket that holds it. Make sure the petcock is turned off and disconnect the fuel hose at the carb. Loosen the throttle and idle cable at the handlebar throttle assembly. Pull the carb out of the intake manifold seal. Work the throttle and idle cables out of their positions in the carb. Bring the carb with the choke cable out and away from the engine. Take the choke cable out of the carb with a 14mm open end wrench. Take the plunger and spring off the old cable and swap it to the new cable and reinstall the choke cable. Put the throttle and idle cables back onto the carb, put a new intake manifold seal on the intake manifold and push the carburetor back into the new seal. Put the choke cable in it's bracket and secure the nut. Be careful and do not over tighten the nut as the plastic cable housing will break. Reconnect the fuel line, the vacuum line, and anything else that was taken off. Replace the air filter backing plate and the air cleaner. Readjust the throttle and idle cables making sure that the throttle operates freely and returns when let go on it's own. Never put any kind of lubricant on the choke cable. There is a knurled wheel that you can use to tighten the cable so that it stays where you put it.

It runs good but can't get it to start in cold weather. What should I do 85 Suzuki gs 550.


Without much other information of what has been done, I would start with the choke system. The choke cable may be detached or far out of adjustment. With a helper see if you can watch the choke cable move the choke lever on the carbs when you move the choke lever to full choke. Cables do break and or stretch. If that is the case then reconnect, replace, or adjust as necessary. If the choke lever and carb choke system is moving correctly then the problem may be in the carburators themselves.

Good Luck

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

I just bought a 2001 Yamaha R6 and the choke cable is there but not installed the cable just hangs. Does any one know how to fix the choke cable on a 2001 Yamaha r6 ?


hi, this is the best way to replace the choke cable, first remove the riders seat, 2 alun key bolts at the rear of the seat turn up the corners of the seat and you will find the bolts,
undo the tank fiking screws at the front of the tank and then prop up the fuel tank , remove the air box by undoing the 10mm bolt in the front of the airbox, then undo the clip/clips holding the airbox rubbers to the carburetors, lift of the airbox, now you will see the carburettors and the location of the choke cable sliding mechanisam,

undo from the handlebar the left hand switch unit and pull the 2 halfs apart you will then be able to remove the nipple of the old cable from the opperating lever, replace the new cable using a small amount of grease on the new nipple,then thread the new cable through the frame following the exact same route as the old cable and connect it to the carbs and check the opperation of the choke lever, pulling it on and off making sure when the choke is off that you have a small amount of frree play in your cable and the lever on the carb end is all the way home, if you are happy you havereplaced the control cable correctly, you can then reasemble the airbox, lower the tank and replace the seat, finaly recheck the operation of the controls before riding the machine on the road, regards, paul

Have a 1982 Honda CB650SC NightHawk and had the carbs off and know the choke won't work.when you when you try to turn the choke off it's like the cable is


Check the routing of the choke cable and, basically, make sure it does not get kinked or pulled tight when the handlebars are turned from side to side. Then, remove any excess free play in the cable by turning the adjustment fitting that's part of the cable. You want it so that the choke mechanism on the carburetors begins to move as soon as the handlebar mounted choke lever is moved. If the cable is worn worn - or broken - replace it.
