    Hello my wise motoredbiking friends. I have a question about the choke lever. Vibration is making it go to the "up" position, causing me to have to reach down about every block or so and flip it back down so the engine doesn't sputter and die. This is annoying (and can be potentially hazardous in traffic). Can the choke lever be tightened? Thanks!

    i think it can be tightened... check at the pivot-point behind the air filter. there might be a nut there that you can tighten.
    if not, then i'm not sure.... i dont have my carb in front of me to look at.. sorry

    yes...behind the air filter is a nut. snug it up a lil & you'll be fixed. :)

    Thanks guys. I thought there might be something like that. I'll have to tackle it tomorrow when I fix the rear fender. The bolt where it holds to the frame broke a hole clean through the fender due to vibration. Old fenders. I'm just glad it wasn't the front one that broke. :shock:
