My 77 xs360 doesn't like to start cold. I'm assuming because there's a choke of some sort missing. There's nothing on the handlebar, but the left carb looks like there's something not there. There's a little lever attached to a rod that connects both carbs. The rod pulls on a little plunger I thought was some kind of accelerator pump, even though most cv type carbs don't have accelerator pumps, right? Is it just the choke and there's some kind of knob not there?

Right side (I forgot the pencil. The black part is the plunger)


Left side (pointing out lever that moves the rod)


Left side (pointing to a threaded tower where something should go?)


Thanks,
Mike

I'm gonna guess the threaded tower is the pivot point for a choke lever that's not there and the L-shaped tin bracket directly under the pencil in the last picture is the detent for said lever.

Never worked on an XS360 though..

that assemble is your choke. its carb mounted.

Here is a diagram for your carb set. looks like your missing number 40 for sure. number 69 is considered a starter shaft and 40 is the starter lever.

the hole your refering to acually is the mount for the starter lever.

head out to babbitts.com and see if they are available

Thanks for your help. I went out this morning and looked at my ZRX and realized that even thought it's mounted a little differently, the set up I was looking at on the Yammie was obviously the choke. For a while I thought it was somekind of tickler set up like the amal's had.

You are looking at a choke setup for sure. Not sure about yours but some bikes only have a choke on ONE carb. I am not seeing anything missing - so you might have everything except for the choke is only on one carb

Another cheap setup that almost works OK

No, the lever that actuates it is definately missing. There's no way to keep the choke on with out the lever attached to the rod that hits the detent.

The shinbone's connected to the......
