Im not a quitter!!

But damn for the life of me cant install that new choke cable!!Gotta get way up under the frame/breather assembly AND a tiny spot there between the carbs.Freakin got a lot "disassembled" (gas tank off,filter pods,ect,ect) then called it quits when I saw really no way to remove breather assembly 'cause its tight in the frame and wrapped around the engine.So the bullchit is guess I'm gonna do a "rig" on the broke cable.

No don't do that, there's a PDF works manual on line, can't find the link just now, but here's a picture off it, what bit are you finding hard? Hardest (fiddly) bit is getting it hooked into the car and the outer elbow sits into a bracket on one of the carbs , the cable just feeds up through the frame along the side of the intake shroud! Patience!

Think the manual download is on the forum somewhere I'm sure. I know it's a fiddly job, I had problems myself, thought all was fitted right but wasn't just right at the carbs, caused the choke to stick on, but I persevered and got sorted in the end! Good luck with it!

hang in there, spent hours trying to work on those carbs, If I have to do anything to those carbs now, I just rip all that stuff out of there and go to pods and remove the air box so I can see the carb when I take the tank off.
i've went to the dealer to see how much and if they have a problem taking off and putting on carbs, they do its about 500 dollars.
if the cable is all you got wrong see how much it is for them to put it on, let someone else try it, but if you are going to work on it in the future, I would take all that stuff out now while you got it apart. good luck
