On my PC800 I had a problem with the choke button being too stiff. So I lubricated the cable. All OK. For those people with loose choke cables, you may be able to stiffen the action by crushing the cable slightly where it clamps at the carburator. This will require the removal of the top shelter and airbox to access the cable clamp. Before you start this process, I strongly recommend that you look at the service manual to see what parts are removed. And the sequence of removal.
BTW: If you want to turn your PC800 into a hotrod, see my posts on PC800.co.uk forum. The modified bike is fun to drive.
