Hey everyone,

My Honda Hornet’s choke cable doesn’t seem to wanna put the choke throttle back down to normal. Tried lubing it, it was not successful. There is nothing wrong with the assembly by the motor and carbs, but it seems like the cable won’t allow the throttle to go back to normal. I’d have to push the assembly by the motor to get it to return to normal rpm’s.

Perhaps I didn’t lube the cable enough? Any suggestions? Should I just get a new oem cable (which is cheap)?

Thanks in advanced!

Regards,
Alan

Did you lube the assembly as well?

There is a spring that works with the plunger to close it. Is the spring in place?
Does the cable move freely when disconnected?
Did the problem occur after some sort of repair, or maybe after a fall?
Has the bike been sitting for a length of time? 5

Hey Semifast,

I need to check that spring out. The cable works disconnected. I just replaced the clutch cable, perhaps removing the tank to see the routing again may help. The bike hasn’t been dropped in some time. And it has been risen a lot this season.

I will definitely check out the clutch cable routing.

Yeah, the cable/s could get in a bind against the underside of the tank.
Let us know how things work out...
