1982 Xl500r cable routing
« on: Sep 24, 2017, 12:26:14 »
Hey guys, just traded for this bike in a box and I'm having trouble figuring out where all these damn cables go. On the handle bars there's two throttle cables, a clutch cable and a single decomp cable and a choke plunger. On the engine there's a lever for the kickstarter, a clutch lever, decomp lever, two cable spots on the carb throttle and a choke cable on the carb. So where the hell is the cable for the kickstart? And what does that even do? I've seen the service manual for this bike and it does little to explain this I was wondering if you guys could help? Thanks!

I bought a bike so I still have something to fix in the summer while the sled is waiting to break in the winter.

Ok so I figured out that I'm missing a cable between the decomp on the head and the kickstart thingy. Unfortunately this cable is pretty scarce on the interwebs. Anybody know what that kickstart thing even does? I've never seen anything like it.
