Hi I'm trying to find more detailed info on completely removing the choke from the carb. If available, pics would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Can't you just take the old one with you to Ace?any of you guys kind enough to give specs on the spring at least diameter to go match some stuff up.
I have had mine work it's way out before and then read about the lock nut in the Aero service manual and discovered mine was very loose. No problems since.And plenty don't seem to have any issues with it at all to even mess with it.
I don't use it, so why have it.
Did mine this way a couple of years ago and no leaks. Took the stock spring to the hardware store and matched it to a heavier one. The nut on top of the plunger and spring is actually six sided but I forget what mm socket fit it. I used the bracket for the "enricher" cable to provide an alternate mount for my chrome covered horn. Not a Harley-type cow bell, but looks pretty good. Total cost less than $15.There are no pics of doing it that I know of.
All you do is loosen the 17 mm nut behind the choke knob and slide out of the bracket, next is to unscrew the cable from the carb body and pull the whole unit out.
You then can remove the plunger from the cable now your options are to get another spring of the sane basic size but heavier rate and replace it then reinstall everything or you can take the nut off the cable and just use it with the spring to hold the plunger down this way you would also seal the opening of the nut with some RTV sealer.
:nope:Too easy.Just puttin it out there for others who may have a floppy knob.
When I find a post with pictures that I want to keep for future reference, I use my browser to print the page to a .pdf, and save that to my VTX (or other) directory/folder on my hard drive (actually DropBox).No! That's the problem with photo sharing / hosting sites like Photo Bucket and others. Accounts go away and the pictures are gone forever unless the OP still has the pictures and is still around. :banghead:
I have run into that on several how to's from the past and it is maddening when you want to do something to your bike and then find that the photos of the process have disappeared. That is why I always upload pictures directly to the Cafe with my posts!:47b20s0:
