Any good?.... :toothy8:
I have now also tried the C-5503840. This fits OK, but the inner diameter is a bit too big so it doesn't "clamp" the cable onto the plunger tightly - it could come apart if the spring isn't under tension and the cable is free to move sideways, which shouldn't be possible when it's all assembled and screwed into the choke.icenian said:I've just fitted the D11480 springs
Good call mate! - the chokes were something that I'd been thinking about (after the rear shock, countershaft, wheel rims... et al.) but a straightforward (i.e. affordable) fix is always good :thumb:Just resurrecting an ancient thread.
Loads of research went into sourcing spare springs for choke plungers. Did they ever work?
I need new springs and honda do not supply them separately, now up to £62 for each set of springs plungers etc.
By coincidence the spring part number D11480 seems to be used in loads of Numatic vacuum cleaners, i have just ordered a couple to see if they fit at about 60p each.
I will keep you posted
Disassembly is the same amount of work.Just out of interest, how easy is "dead easy" when it comes to disabling the choke? Any easier than replacing the springs and servicing the cable?
