    hi all

    can anyone tell me or know where I can find a diagram of how the T160 choke cable should be routed ?, however I try it the cable is very stiff and when attempting to put the choke on the cable just goes slack and doesn’t do much with the slides, or am I better removing it ?

    These bikes seem to start well without chokes as long as the ambient temperature is above 10 deg C.  Below that I’ve found them more difficult to start without choke, in freezing temperatures they just won’t go without it.  So if that suits your riding habit I would bin the chokes.  This is based on my ownership of a T160 and a Rocket 3, both with standard Amals.
