Choke cable?

Postby MEHall » Sun Jan 07, 2018 1:18 pm

Is it very difficult to replace the choke cable? :?: Wich means: Is it hard to reach the end where the choke cable is at the carbs? :?: :roll:

It's not hard on a 1980 CB650 Custom with slide carbs if the tank is removed. Not sure about later models with CV carbs even though I did it on my Nighthawk but I don't remember doing it.

That sounds good. :wink: I have tried to find pictures on how it looks around that area where the choke cable ends at the carbs but no luck. :roll:
I hope it is as easy you say. :wink: :D

Loosen the screw in the green circle on the cable guide to release the cable, no need to undo the screw fully. Then unclip the cable from the pulley in the red circle. To replace the cable, first clip the nipple in to the pulley in the red circle then take up the slack in the cable and tighten the screw in the green circle on the cable guide.

You may find it easier to make a wire loop to catch the pulley if it is difficult to reach between the carbs but I never had a problem. Just wrap a piece of fine wire around something round and twist it into a loop, I also find this a good little tool for connecting choke springs when I rebuild carb racks.
