Question about 1981 Suzuki Gs 550 L

Replacing choke cable on a 1981 Suzuki GS550L. Does anyone have a procedural guide or this? I'd like to have a look see before I attempt it. Doesn't seem that hard, just wanted to check.

It isn't hard at all, just remove the choke from the carbs then pull back on the end you took out of it and push back on the spring and twist the end so it comes off, if your new cable came with these its still pretty handy to keep around, especially the springs. But after that, loosen the screw that is underneath the choke adjuster and pull it out then loosen the end from the choke lever and just simply yank it out from the bike. Theres nothing really there that could get in the way besides the breather in the valve cover so you should be fine. After that simply do everything backwards that you took it off.

'81' GS550L Breaks Up Over 5000 RPM, Blows Black Smoke, Runs Normal Up To That Point, Valve & Ign. Timing Right, Good Compression, Float Height, OK


It could be jetted too rich,the choke could be engaging at WOT,or,you could most likely have weak valve springs which are "floating" the valves at higher RPM's.Also,you might try lowering the needles in the carbs by a couple clicks.
Good Luck!
