Choke Assembly Help

Alright. I recently bought a friends 1996 CBR600 F3 for $1200. But it needs repair. Nothing major but mostly little things that I hae to nit pick through. Here is the Original Thread about my bike.

Anyways one problem I have run into is the bracket that holds the tubing for the choke near the carbs. Here is a Picture of what I'm talkinga bout. I also linked it to Flickr so you can click on "ALL SIZES" at the top to see a bigger picture.

I'm afraid I might need to make a custom bracket. If so what part of the tube does the bracket need to hold on to? The Metal end peice or just the plastic part? I'm going to head to our local Honda dealership to see if they can help but I doubt it.

Also how do I attach this...

You need to have something hold the silver end piece of the black cable in place.


As far as the other, looks like you are missing a slotted nut like on the assembly right above it. (round thing with slot)

You mean like on the the Clutch?

I know where the peice goes there is a threaded section (That is somewhat broken but still useable) on the clutch control. Then the nut on the bottom of the threads.

From what I could tell it looks like I need the choke part to be removed and for me to spin it on that part. Then tighten the nut down. The metal thread part is attached to the bent metal arm that houses the clutch cable. I don't believe it spins at all.

I guess I need to search for a picture of underneath a CBR600s clutch control to figure it out.

For holding the choke cable sleeve to that bracket with the screw hole, a top half-moon bracket goes over the cable sleeve and is tightened down by a screw into the top half-moon bracket and then into that screw hole on that bottom bracket you have. There should be a small half-moon depression in that bracket below the choke cable. The top half-moon bracket will squeeze the cable housing between the top and bottom half-moons. You can make one easily if you can't buy one.

Where the top of the choke cable goes into the handlebar thingie, it should just screw up into the housing. I believe the screw part is separate from the tube and turning the nut will screw the tube to the handlebar thingie. Just don't cross-thread it.

In this picture the top peice that has a bolt holding it was lost.

I went to a honda store and they found one. So they gave it to me but there was a problem. If looking at the picture on the left side of the top bracket there was suppose to have a notch going down. It did have a notch but on the wrong side. So I hacksawed it off and got it to fit.

Once I did that I attached it to the bracket then removed the long stud that had threads on the end of each sides (Which I found out today and has been giving me mondo troubles). I put a nut on one end then held the bracket via needle nose pliers and shoved the long stud into the hole and then tightened it down...

This is the left side of the bike where the stud comes through at...

And finally I got it all together...

I did get a video of the bike after I started it. The carbs are way out of sync and the exhaust is stock (With I think original or some sort of dirrrrrrty dirty air filter). Still not perfect but I am freaking happy that I got this much done...

(That's my mommy getting all upset)
