Default Re: Stripped choke lever screw

It's attached with a bolt that has 2 flat sides, and very little thread - obviously easy to strip. There is a nut inside the air cleaner.

What I ended up doing is adding an extra washer to it so the threads the nut grabs are ok. Only a temporary fix I think.

What makes me mad is I took off the carb to fix the stupid choke lever initially, then the thing strips. Now that I have it fixed, I rode to work today with crappy power, surging up and down, and a nice gas leak from the carb somewhere. Wondering if the float is stuck or something. Bah.
