Default Choke relocation bracket:

Received it today, from J&P Cycles, and absolutely no other paperwork. My question to you is the procedure for getting the cable through the hole without cutting a slot into it. Thanking you in advance.

Their bracket mounts to the top of the carb instead of running across the bike to the far side. Both ends of the choke cable are to large to pass through the bracket, I popped the ferrule out of the carb body end and tried to slide it back through the cable but it's stuck down inside the sheath. You can see it on their site, maybe I can post a link.

you may have to remove the plastic elbow and brass nut to get it on,
BTW the brass nut is installed just tight enough, the friction is controlled the plastic nut in front or just behind the knob.
the picture I saw on their website doesn't show much.


their website is here maybe they can help you out

Paul,
I still have a mish mosh mix of CV & Mikuni choke cable parts with a billet knob that I will gladly mail to you. The only reason I didn't ship it with the carb, is because it wasn't all CV parts. My Mikuni instructions had me use certain parts from the CV choke cable set-up when I installed my Mikuni.
Just let me know.

First of all, DON'T CUT OFF THE KNOB (unless you're already buying a new one).
  1. With the cable assembly removed from the carburetor, remove the brass plunger from the cable end. Be careful not to lose (or launch) the spring. You can pull back on the spring and work the plunger off the cable end sideways.
  2. Once removed pull the end nut off and firmly pull the rubber elbow off.
  3. Remove the plastic nut and locking washer.
  4. Pass the cable through the bracket, replacing the lock washer and nut under the bracket.
  5. Reassemble the elbow, end nut, and plunger.

Thank you for the quick responce. Are we talking the brass plunger with the ferrule? If so I did pull the ferrule and slid the cable back up the sheath, however is stuck somewhere around the elbow and won't go forward or back.

Once you have the spring off the.cable, your left with a little ball end on the cable,.pull the elbow off that end. Give it a firm pull, don't be a wimp...lol its actually a two piece elbow with the nut being one, the elbow another
