Choke cable replacement--HELP!
Written by gibinmich on 6/16/2010 at 02:09 pm

I'm no mechanical wizard and the choke cable was a easy fix for me. I didn't
remove the carbs but did take off the shelter and two side panels. Members
should at least post their home states in the bio, I would be happy to help
someone if they were close by. I'm in west Mich., stop on by.

could turn the carb and get a better angle at the nuts that hold the ends of the
choke cable to the carbs.

be useful to have an open ended wrench or one of those sockets that are used for
oxygen sensors that will go over a cable. There is a small spring on each
connector to the carb so watch for that when you get the nut loosened up. I
don't remember exactly how the cable ends connected, but it was pretty obvious
once you had the old one removed.

much over the last 4 yrs. since I picked up the GL so I have a few more things
to check out, clean, & possibly change.... I had a spare air filter so I
changed that out while I was at it too.

attach??

            You may have already taken care of your problem, but here's some reference photos just in case they would still help. I'll ditto what Phil said- having the carbs loose is much easier to handle the cable fittings.
