Re: Choke not staying put

OK, the pull choke on my 96 900 is driving me crazy. For those of you that own or have owned at one time the older blades with the manual choke I have a question for ya. Did you ever have a problem with the choke cable sliding back to the close position only 1 or 2 seconds after you pulled it out to the open position? When I go out to start my bike I like to put my gear on while I let the bike warm up. Only problem is mine won't stay on the choke. I have to hold the choke cable in the open position. Any ideas on a work around?

Not sure 'bout the 900....but on most of the pull out style chokes, there is a little knob directly under the knob you pull to set the choke, the little knob is a friction lock, try to give it a little turn

Re: Choke not staying put

Ok, old thread I know... but I got the same issue on my '93, but there is no knob under to alter the friction. Any other ideas?

Sorted it. The friction lock is a nut directly under the know as ROADDOG61 said - it's hidden under a rubber boot. Just pull the boot up and you'll see it.
