Help?!

Postby Rebelkitty » Wed Apr 06, 2016 10:53 pm



Hey guys totally sorry about this post, feeling super ridiculous...

Im super new to the bike world but hopefully someone can help me out! Just bought my gold wing and just making sure i can get everything put together once i finish body work that's already been started. Been curious what this cord is called and where it goes.

Any help will be much appreciated!!

I agree,the slot on the bracket goes in the left clamp on the handlebars.

You could ride without it,but why would you?It's not hard to install especially if you already have the bike apart.You can reach down and operate the choke linkage by hand when cold starting(back of carb 3) pita if you ask me!
