Choke cable adjustments?

i have a 2004 Sportsman 400 and my mechanic says the choke cable is froze up. I can get a new one for around 50.00 how hard is it to replace? and is there anything i can do to ride and get it to start with out a new cable, he said he ran the battery down trying to start it with little choke. before i took it to him the choke would come out and gradually work its way back in as the bike warmed up. i took to the shop because started and rely were shot. any help appreciated..

Not hard at all. Get it done. Fix it right and it'll last a long time,rig it and see what happens.

'96 Xplorer 300 Aftermarket CDI box, K&N filter, jet kit, reworked expansion chamber from dirt bike, 1" taller + 1" wider rear tires, dual wenches, Rack on rear/w cargo pac, polaris box on front, Mossy Oak cover on seat, back-up lights on rear, aux. power source for GPS,"Theft deturent's", hand protectors, new clutch springs coming! Would love to find GURU style bumpers! By the way, I'm also a graduate of AMI with over 20 years of motorcycle mechanical experiance. New to quads, but the same basic engines. 2 stroke or 4 stroke!
