Choke cable clamp

Post by 91interstate » Mon Jun 04, 2018 8:33 pm



Where can I order a choke cable clamp? This is the little metal clamp that mounts to the back of the intake plate. Attached is an image of what I am talking about. This part does not look orderable. I’m dead in the water without it. Any idea where I can get one? It’s on a 91 GL1500 Interstate.

It's shown in the parts diagram, but like you said, it has no discrete part number:

This generally means either that it is assumed to be part of the assembly already, or it is so generic that they don't bother with a part number. Honda rarely has parts like that - even individual screws get part numbers.

I would try either fabricating a new one, or perhaps searching for something similar and modifying it to fit, perhaps something like this:

Briggs & Stratton, or similar engines use such parts for the same purpose on small gas engines. Check your local lawnmower repair place.

Thanks guys, I gave up and found some metal stiff enough to fabricate into a clamp with the little tab to prevent it from rotating. Back up and running after rebuilding the carbs! Runs like a purring kitten. Or I should say it did for a couple days then the alternator died. It was the original Hitachi 40amp. I have a new 90 amp one on order that will be here tomorrow. Plan to take the old one and have it rebuilt as a spare just in case.
