Choke lever and cable.

Recommended Posts

Anyone got a choke lever and cable spare? My is usable but the wire cable is too short to fully reach both carbs. I'm looking for a good lever with wire and cable long enough to be correctly installed. Thanks.

The cable only reaches the back carb. There should then be a metal rod that connects the two.

Ah perfect, that makes sense. Have you got a photo, I'll be able to emulate it with a rod I make up myself?

Here you are - as simple as it sounds - a metal rod with a screw fitting at each end.  The one on the back carb has a hole in it for the cable.  Hope this helps.

Perfect, certainly helps. Not a cheap fix by any means sjs list that at 17.95 plus shipping and tax! Think I'll make my own, I have the screw fittings, just need the bar.

I would have thought a bit of cleverly fashioned coat hanger would do the trick!

Yes, I thought the same. I eventually did it with a stainless steel bicycle wheel spoke that I had lying about seems to have done the trick.

Charlie strikes again, bicycle spoke, perfect and stainless steel as well.
