i was looking at the high performance cns carb from kingsmb. i'm not sure though. it looks confusing.


well i have been riding the bike around all morning and the rubber band worked wonders. looks a little weird but it helps a lot.


norman the moderator said this and i trust his exp. i have no idea what a choke shaft bolt is though or where its located at on the carb.
If you are happy with your carb, besides the slipping choke lever, I would suggest you stick with it. The CNS carb is a beast to tune, lots of people get frustrated and give up on it and buy an NT or Speed carb instead.
I assume the choke shaft bolt is right on the choke lever somewhere, probably inside the air filter cover. If your rubber band works just use that, or take the air filter off and you will figure out a way to tighten it up a bit, not rocket science here... Stick with it and you will get it worked out....
