Question Question about choke cable

Hey everybody, new to this forum, have had a vulcan 750 for a couple months now, really like it, but not new to the bike game.

I am just frustrated because I was changing out the handlebars on my vulcan and everything was simple except getting the choke cable back in the assembly (control switch). There is a little notch the cable sits in, but when I put it in, and tighten everything up, I turn the choke and it just slips out.... It's driving me insane, anyone got a simple trick to end my struggle?
Also if anyone else wants to do this, Don't take the stupid thing apart, just loosen it and slide it off...

We ask new members to make their first post in the "Newbie Check-in" section and introduce themselves, tell what wrenching and two wheel experience they have before posting questions about their bike. Also note there are categories for specific bike parts being questioned. I moved your post here, where it should have been posted.

Sadly, I've never removed the choke cable on this bike and can't give you any tips....

Thanks, Yeah I'm Alex, I live in Knoxville, I used to have a DRZ400E and I converted it to a supermoto street lethal custom killer. I have a few years of wrenching experience under my belt, I've been working on cars and bikes since I was little with my father. Wish I could say I'm an expert, but this is just a hobby, I try not to let it consume my life ha. Also I don't really have the expenses to do big builds like big bore kits or anything.
This bike, I've put on new exhaust, about to do the ear shave mod, new jetting, and I've moved some stuff like lights around. The basics.

Can someone move this portion of the thread to the Newbie Check-In section as there seems to be a communications problem.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

If I remember correctly by pulling the cable a bit (carb end) as you put the other half of the box back on you can keep the choke cable in it's slot.

I've done it but it's been a while but as I recall I did it without a helper.
