Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a that black plastic lever that is attached onto the carburetor (believe it controls the choke.) I accidentally melted mine.

Thanks!

PS: If you have a spare carburetor and don't want to sell the lever without the rest of the assembly, let me know. I might be interested in buying the whole carb if the price is right.

Ok, so we can't let you just make that statment "I accidentallly melted mine"...and get away without the rest of the story.
What gives?
and what part precisely is it that you are looking for?

I put my carburetors in our oven at 450 degrees fahrenheit to dry them after having giving them a thorough clean. Yes I really am that stupid.  Cry

The part that is circled is what I am looking for:

Found a cheap set of CBR600F carbs on ebay, they looked identical so I decided to buy those instead. Thanks anyways guys!

good to hear.
Maybe someday....one of these fine CB1 gurus will compile a list of parts which are compatible from other bikes, like the F2, F3, etc...
I think in general Honda tried use parts from a bunch of other bike types......glad to hear you found a solution.

Thought at first you meant the lever on the handlebars! If you have melted that part, you may be wise to check any other plastic and rubber parts which were in the same oven. I believe the early 600 carbs are basically the same, would certainly make sense since the bottom ends of the engine and so many other parts are the same. The jetting will be different ofc, and maybe the spacing between carbs.

too bad there aren't adaptor type kits that can take a 600 CBR carb and just fit it to the CB1 location.

I think the CBR600 F1 is the only bike with similiar carbs, but not all the parts are identical.  I do believe the choke lever that the OP originally asked about is the same.  I posted somewhere about rebuilding my carbs and made some comments on what was the same and what wasn't.

Found the link to my thread.  Page 2 is where I compare carb parts.
