My bike has been parked for eight years now. That was not the plan so it was not stored correctly. Working on cleaning out tank now. I will be rebuilding carbs shortly. The choke cable only moves about 45deg. I am just curious about how much travel should be seen in the starter valves. Does anyone know? I don't know for sure that the cable is not stuck but i don't believe so. Will know when i pull carbs. I suspect one or more of starter valves are stuck.

You are probably right, will be easy to tell when you disconnect the cable. The valves don't move much but a small amount makes a big difference.

Do you know how much lateral movement should be seen? I was wondering what should be expected,1/8, 1/4, 1/2 and so on. Can't imagine more than 3/8 tops by looking at it.
