    97 GP760 choke knob

    I have a 97 GP760. I've run into a bit of a problem. The choke knob came off the end of the cable. I went to the yamaha dealer to get one and big surprise you can't just get the knob. I have to buy the entire choke cable. I guess I'm a tight wad but I really hate to spend $40.00 for a $4 or $5 knob. Anyone know where I might find just the knob or will a knob off of another model work? And experience or advice on this would be appreciated. Karl

    You might want to think about switching to a primer, it works much better than a choke. I think they cost about 30 bucks and take less than an hour to install.

    If you want to stay with the choke I can see if I can find the one that came of my raider when I installed a primer setup.

    Oldmanraider. I appreciate the input and the suggestion but to be honest I have a primer system on a seadoo I have and haven't had alot of luck with it. I know it's apples and oranges in a way but it's a simple system so doubt there is much differences between manufactures. I'd appreciate it if you find that knob. Just let me know when you find it and how much you would like for it and we'll set up shipping and address and such. Thanks again, Karl

    I agree with oldmanraider put in a primer it is a huge improvement on a GP1200,if you have the SBN mikunis it will increase the life of the motor.

    I have one somewhere im shure there are plenty not being used because a lot have been removed.

    My primer went in the old choke's position.

    SCOTT.........
