CHoke/enrichner mod Q's

2001 klr sripped stupid plastic nut after doing 22 cent mod so i ordered the shorter enrichner from dealer but .. it is also plastic nut and it does not come with a needle on end of plunger like stock enrichner has ? will it just flood out the bike ?


the part number we have published 16016-0013 goes to a 80/125 kdx not a a 250 klx and it does not come with said needle even though micro fiche drawing shows it with one ..'no updated part numbers either ..



so i ordered a 16016-1068 wich is listed for the 1996 klx250 at dealership it too shows a needle on the end but its just a flat plunger .. im affraid it will flood it out .. both also have plastic nuts but dont have long cables to twist em off ..


so either it dont need it once all you installed them or this aint the right part ?

The only one I can find a picture of is the Harley part and it has a needle on the end.

I've also seen Harley ones on e-Bay where all you get is the cable, not the end piece. I guess you pop your old one off and put it on the new cable.

I say throw the puppy on there and see what happens.

I re-used my OEM starting enricher plunger, when I converted to a Drag Specialties short cable; the plunger snapped right into the cable end, same as with the stock cable.

Your old plunger won't fit the replacement "choke?"

BTW, I replaced the plastic cap connecting the "choke" cable to the carb with a metal one from Stead Engineering. Can't tell, entirely, from your images, but--seemed like the threads on the cap are tapered more sharply on my setup.

Brief comment on "stripping" the threads on the plastic cable end cap: I never stripped those threads, but mating the tapered threads of the cap to the carb casting is a real challenge for me, in the confined operating space when the carb is mounted. I certainly stripped the skin from my fingers in the process! I've seen images of 12 mm open-end wrenches, bent about 90 degrees, used to turn these rascals.

Will your setup work, with the blunt plunger shown? Don't know; ideally, the plunger should seal off its fuel orifice fully when the "choke" is OFF; maybe the blunt end will do that.

Here's the aftermarket cable; stock plunger/spring/cap fit as on the stock cable:

Damocles has more wooden rulers and yardsticks than an angry nun in a Catholic school. I'm digging the classic Montgomery Ward featured above.

In my case, compressing the spring permitted removal of the plunger by sliding the cable out through a slot in the plunger. Installation on the aftermarket cable was the reverse, slipping the cable end into the probe through the slot.

From what I have learned you need that needle or at least the one I tried to swap out had to have it. I did the same thing, just took the plunger with the needle off the old cable and installed it on the new one.

BTW, how many hands high is your KLR?

OK, I'm done now.
