Hello Everyone,

so i broke the housing on the plastic bit that holds the choke cable in place beneath the handlebar.
The Lever on the cable is fine but the housing/guiding is broken so the lever has nothing to grab onto. I can send photos if you like...

So i want to get rid of all of it and want to buy a choke cable eliminator or a choke plunger.

I am having trouble to find one and am really overwhelmed with the information. So i hope you can help me.
I have heard, that kx250 plungers, harley plungers and others fit? That you have to check for the right carb, CV,CVK, Keihin, CKR, CVK 40 CV 40... but how do i spot which one i have?

It is a 1987 Klr 650 A european model (germany).

Can i buy this? (remove "h*tps" with https and "w*w" with "www"):

I just threw one on also; it works fine, but it is a little hard to get at the manual pull knob. I think it's probably an improvement upon the Gen 1 enricher control, as it's less likely to get destroyed during an "incident".

G'Morning CaptainBob,

I'd put the choke eliminator on a Gen 2, but I don't think it matters (Gen1 or Gen 2) as there was no real change in the carburetor. I didn't like reaching under the tank with my gloves on, so I eventually got rid of the "eliminator" and installed a new cable and enricher (plastic) nut. I'd recommend getting a replacement enricher (plastic) nut and our friend Eagle Mike has them for around $8. https://www.eaglemike.com/enricher-nut-or-choke-nut-plastic-kecn.htm?categoryId=-1

Having a broken enricher nut causes all kinds of heartache, so I hope that this helps - good luck! :p

I have a Gen 2 with a broken plastic housing. I am looking for a reasonably inexpensive fix. The OEM part is $77 to $83.
Here are a couple of samples of Remote 'choke' assemblies.

Someone eventual put a flexible extension cable or 1/8" fuel hose onto their Stead 'choke' shaft, to move the Knob out from under the fuel tank. Near the fuel tap.
It might be shown in one of these other threads?
