    Change choke cable 2000 vz800

    Hello, I have been beating my head against a wall for the past 3 days trying to find any and all information on how to change the choke cable of a 2000 suzuki vz800. Upon doing routine maintenance (spark plugs,oil, etc...) I noticed my cable was broken at the plastic nut that goes into my rear carb. That one was not to difficult to get out, on the other hand, where the cable enters the front carb is another story. There is a total space of approx 3in around the whole line, and no matter how much force I use, I can not seem to unscrew the cable from the front carb(hands and tools to big). any help or insight as to what tools i need or how to remove that front nut for the cable, would be greatly appreciated.

    Can you get a pair of long nose vice grips in there?...otherwise cut the head off a correct size spanner and weld a long rod onto it....dont forget to weld the rod offset so you can get some movement and then reverse it to get some more.

    Good luck
