ATV: 2004 650 4x4
Hello,

I just bought a 2004 650 mrp v quad yasterday. It only had 238 miles, great shape for $3400. I am very excited! The only problem is that the choke lever on the left grip broke off, and I have been searching for one online, can't find it. I have searched here, but does anyone know how much this will cost, and how hard it is to fix? Where can I find one? It starts fine now and runs great, but I'm in AZ and will take it north into the cold next week, plowing with it and heard they are hard to start in the cold (how can that be, it is an ARCTIC cat, right?). Thanks, guys...

I just replaced mine.Part number is 0409-025.I ordered mine through my local powersports dealer,cost $9.00.Slide the dust boot over the plastic lip toward the instrument cluster,remove the two screws under the ckoke housing to get at the choke lever.

My dads 06 650 twin did the same thing but also had a frewed choke cable which caused it to stick. Chock lever broke because the cable wouldn't move . just for info.

The v2s rock I've had an 04 v2 for a few years and now I just got a new zero mile 06 v2, pretty happy to find one.

I've had the same problem, the chocks are a weak spot with the v2s which leads to the hard to start problem. I've replace my cable and she starts good every time even in -20c weather. But I was wonding how to eliminate the cable and have a direct chock lever. So how did you do yours?

BUT IT&#39;S MY FIRST DAY!

The reason it probably broke was a sticky choke cable. I just replaced the lever on mine for exactly that reason. I'd recommend buying a can of "cable life" lubricating spray, so that while you have it apart, you can spray the lube down the cable sheathing and prevent it from breaking on you again. Might as well while you have it apart...

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul."
