Hi...new to the site looks great.



I actually found it bysearching for help with a repair...trying to replace choke cable on 1985 interstate. I have traced and found the "area" where the carb end of the cable appears to be but I cannot figure out how to get to it without taking much of the motor apart. A retired Goldwing Mechanic tolde me it can be replace without removing any major parts of the bike/motor...about 20-30 minute job??????? Have haynes manual but a close up of unit with no explanation of how to get to it... CAN ANYONE HELP???????????????



Thanks

Frank

It is in the front of the carbs and a bit tricky to get to. Good luck.

Ok, when I did mine, I had to pull the carbs. I only did it once on a 1200, and it was about 6 years ago, so my memory isn't clear on all the steps. But, it wasn't a 20-30 minute job, not even close. And pulling the carbs was like doing one of those puzzles where you have push, pull, turn and try to work it out. It's a real tight squeeze. You might be able to just remove the 4 intake pipes and turn the carbs enough to get to it, but unless someone comes along that can give you good instructions, it might be a little bit of exploratory mechanical work.

You might want to post your question over in the technical section. Most of the gurus won't see it over here, and a lot more people frequent over there. Just a few of us greeters hang out over here on a regular basis.

Thanks to all for the great hello!!! Seems one of you is a neighbor...Button Lady from Buffalo; I live in Rochester..just a couple of hours apart!!! Hope she is not a Bills fan...real ugly game today!! And thanks for suggestions with my choke cable issue...I also realized I should post on the Technical forum...after a few of the responses it seems that I could be getting into a bigger job than I thought; I have decided to call my mechanic and schedule an appointmnet to have him fix it!! thanks again
Frank
