Help Disconnecting Carb From Choke BS90 Trail
« on: August 08, 2017, 09:06:43 AM »
Hello Everyone,

   I would like to remove the carb and give it a good soak and cleaning, but I don't see anywhere in the manual that explains how to remove the choke cable from the carb.  I loosen the nut and it just seems like it binds up and never wants to disconnect from the carb.  Am I doing something incredibly wrong or making this much harder than it really is?  I would not doubt either one is very possible!!!  You all have been such a great help with this project and I am getting close to getting this bike on the road again.  Thank you all in advance.  Mike

You're right it's simple!  Spray penetrating oil in the hole and let it soak.  The plunger just pulls out as long as the cap nut and adjuster are free.  It took a couple of days of soaking before I could remove one of mine.  Good luck, Steve

       If it won't budge after a good soak, disconnect the cable at the lever end and slide the outer cable up so you can get at the choke plunger. Use a small screwdriver in the cable slot to give it a gentle twist. Usually does the trick.
