Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

Okay. Here's a better view of my handlebar choke adjuster.

I actually did not want to use that rather ugly greenish cable sheath. I've got plenty of black sheath on hand. But the green one was long enough for the job and I guess I didn't want to see it go to waste. Being a bit of a miser? I guess so.

But it also worked out well, in a way. In these pics there's now no doubt about which cable to pay attention to.

A home-made L bracket fastened to the seat tube forms the cable stop. Then loop the cable over and run it along the top tube up to the twist shifter on the left hand grip.

I took her out this morning when it was about 50 deg F or so. That's not all that cold. But it's enough that the engine wants some choke. The results were very good. I was able to 'feather' the choke on and off with a good deal of accuracy.

No more 'too much' or 'too little'. Yay!

By the way, my pics 'zoom' quite well. You can get a close look at it.
