Does anyone know what else I need to do for a tune-up? it is almost 500.00 at the shop so I must do it myself.

replace air filter
change oil and filter
change lube
replace coolant as needed
replace 4 spark plugs

carburator seems ok since the bike starts up instantly, touch the starter button and its on.

choke cable won't hold staying up, i can't figure out what to do, has anyone replace it before?

I would run MMO or SeaFoam through the tank. Change the fuel filter. I replace gear oil as well.

On the choke cable there is a round collar just below the choke knob. Make sure it is tight.

How long since the brake and clutch fluid have been changed? They should be replaced at least every 2 years. It is also worth considering replacement of the old rubber brake and clutch lines, if you still have them, with braided stainless steel.

Good point. Lube all cables and flush the brake fluid yearly. I know they say two years, but it only takes 10 minutes. Besides, as important as brakes are, are you willing NOT to keep clean fluid in the system?
