Question about Harley Davidson XL 1200 S Sportster Sport Motorcycles
To replace the enricher cable on the stock Kiehen CV carb, you must remove the carb from the engine.
Remove the air cleaner cover, air filter, and backing plate. To get the backing plate off, you must remove the two large union bolts that go to the heads on either side of the ari filter backing plate and the three smaller bolts at the mouth of the carb. Loosen the adjustment of the throttle cables at the handlebar throttle grip. Take the nut off the backside of the enricher cable and it fall loose from it's bracket. Disconnect the fuel line from the carb, make sure the petcocik is turned off. Now, twist the carb slightly and pull until it comes out. Make sure you guide the enricher cable out. Once you get the carb out far enough, remvove the throttle and the idle cable from the carb and bring the carb on away from the engine. Now, use a 14 mm wrench to unscrew the enrcher cable from the carb. You'll have to change the elbow, nut, spring, and needle from the old cable to the new cable and reinstall it on the carb.
To replace the carb, guide the enricher cable back between the cylinders. Reconnect the throttle and idle cables on the carb. Replace the intake manifold seal (round rubber boot on the intake manifold) and lubricate it with a bit of silicone spray or something. Push the carb as far as you can into the seal. Reconnect the fuel line and adjust the throttle cables. Make sure you don't get them too tight and that the throttle works like it should. Replace the air filter backing plate, air filter, and air filter cover. Put the enricher cable up into it's bracket and tighten the nut on the backside. Be very careful tightening the nut as the plastic housing breaks easily. Tighten the nut just tight enough to securely hold the cable. Check the operation of the carb and make sure it operates smoothly and correctly. Now, you should be ready to ride.
