1984 klr600 project

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I picked up an old klr as a non runner.

I'm gradually working through it bit by bit and today is carb day, the most obvious issue with this is the fact that the previous owner appears to have cut the choke cable and clamped it off so I have a new one on order but I also noticed that on the side of the carb just under the choke there is what seems to be the remnants of a plastic tube that must have snapped. I cant find anything in the manual to identify it so I thought i would ask you fine folk if you have any ideas?

Thanks in advance

ian
