cable luber

Fist check that the problem is not at the lever.
If it is really the cable, the only option is to lube with something like:

If it doesn't move, then yes, you will have to get tank and airbox out of the way to get to work!

If you have sprayed brake cleaner anywhere near your clutch master cylinder it may have run down the choke cables and ......



Fused the little steel cylindrical piece inside the plastic tube that joins both cables together just up from the carbies.

Don't ask me how I know this.
The little metal bit is suppose to slide inside the tube.

power of the forum help please...

got the choke loose it was the rear pin that had jammed inside the carb

now putting it all back together and just about to refit the tank and have this loose connector??

looks like it's supposed to connected to something but can't see what.....its coming out of the right had side as you sit on the bike - but may have been originally on the left before i took the carbs out...

Was the SAS system removed?
Then there should be an identical connector dangling near the rear cilinder head.

Have that same connector, and I still had all the SAS stuff on it, and it was not connected to anything. You can even see the connector not connected to anything on "Gary's" SAS removal on the Hall Of Wisdom.

I wonder if it was for the Euro models that had that additional emissions stuff on it??

Its funny, I was redoing some accessory wiring on the bike yesterday and decided I needed to ask the question about the connector.

Sorry I mixed things up.

It's from the EPC, the thing that limits the power in lower gears.
You can just disconnect it or remove it completely and plug the holes.
