Hi everyone! I just want to start by saying thank you for all the helpful threads on this forum !!
I am a young retired/injured from the Canadian forces. Lost use of my left hand after a bomb exploded in Afghanistan, but I still manage to do a lot with the other one
I bought this 1999 sportsman ( was a real garbage )
I did a lot of maintenance on it.... Cleaned the carb and all the jets...) cleaned everything, painted it .... I'm having an issue with the choke. I searched everywhere before posting and found anything about my model
The choke ( enrichment ) cable start from the switch which is attached with a pin on a rectangle Black box who has a loaded spring inside.
In the middle of the cable theres an adjustment that is covered by a plastic cover
On the end, the cable screw in the carb with also an adjustment screw
I read that to adjust the cable , you need 1/16 of play on the cable when the choke is off ( cable is pushed in)
It seems there's no choke on mine
I mean, the atv starts fine ( it's inside my garage)
Idle is fine but the idle doesn't get higher when I activate the choke/enrichment lever!
How do I adjust that cable so the atv will start when very cold??
There's no way I can see any end of the cable to see the play ( one end is inside the black box with the spring , the other one in the carb)
Thanks again for all the tips you gave on this forum!!
