Hot start cable/lever in choke. Issues?

Recommended Posts

I have been having carb and idling issues. I noticed the person who had the bike before me had the hot start cable screwed into the choke and the choke plunger screwed in where the hot start should go. Are these parts interchangeable or is this part of my idling issue? They have different part numbers but not sure if that is only because one is black and the other red.

They are not always interchageable

Depends on the series carb.

The hot start is a constant source of hanging idle and poor off-idle reponse.

You need to service it: polish the cavity and plunger, and make sure the tip is sealing. Use some anti-sieze in there.

If it has an oring type seal, then it is not interchangable with the choke, which has a plunge type seal.
