I recently replaced the left-hand side handlebar switch assembly on my 1984 GL1200A and now notice my choke will not stay on. What did I forget? What didn't I do? How do I fix it?

I cannot recall, but is there a tensioner where the clutch cable comes into the lever? I'll try to remember to look at my wife's 1200 when I get home

keener, you didn't lubricate the choke (enrichener) cable while you had it apart did you? If so that more than likely your problem.. That's a no-no. The cable friction to it's sheath is basically the friction in the cable system.

Twisty: I didn't touch the choke at all. Simply replaced the switch assembly next to it. Perhaps the assembly needs to be right up against the choke control to provide friction.
