Is your choke cable sticking? It might be freezing if you're in cold country. Some suggest using antifreeze to lube the cable in winter. It it's not a freezing issue, lubing is required. Lubing cables while they're still on the machine isn't easy. One contributor suggested using a plastic bag and sealing it off some how that will work but getting a good seal around the cable can be tough. If you're going that route. Flush the cable with WD40 first and allow it to drain. Then add a light machine oil into the bag and let it seep into the cable. Another way to do it is to remove the cable from the machine roll into a loose circle and submerse it in a pan of light oil. Leave it submerged over night.I have a 02 500i auto and was wondering how to lube the Choke cable. I would like to do it from the Handlebar side.
Any help would be great.
