Choke cable routing?

Hey guys.

I got me engine all buttoned up, and back in the frame. Carbs are back in (after some choice words) and ready to go, minus Choke.

I really can't recall the routing of the choke cable. Does anyone have a picture of the routing when they were re-assembling their bike? It hit 9PM so it was the end of my day, but I would love to get out there in the morning and finish it off. Just gotta get the cooling system, and the tank on.

Can't believe balance damper replacement turned into a 3 week ordeal due to work.

Also remember cable routing is one of those things that you can just make work. By that I mean if you can route it safely so it won't bind or interfere with steering then you have done it correctly.

hey folks-I bought a raked out VN 700 with a 750 motor-when they put the hi bars on it they just cut the choke cable off.I want to just put a basic choke like on a lawn mower on it and attach to the block somewhere so i don't have to pull air filters off and cover carbs with my hands to start it.I have a Clymer repair manual but I need pictures not just words to figure this out.Anybody?

Are thtanners pictures in post 2 clear enough to show you where the choke cables are attached to each carb?

Were your choke cables completely removed from off the carbs?
Or just cut at the handlebars?

The Vulcan "choke" isnt really a choke anyway....its an "enricher" which activates plungers and such....it doesnt activate a butterfly like a mower does. You can move it lower, sure....but keep the actuation setup the same...the plate you see in the carb throat is the throttle plate....
If you go to a Harley or Triumph dealer/shop...they sell one with a short cable that can be mounted by the engine. All 3 use CVK carbs on many models, as well as ArcticCat snowmobiles.
