XR650L Choke Cable Elimination

Has anyone eliminated their choke cable on the XRL? I want to eliminate the cable and set it up to engage at the carb body, like a standard slide carb. I don't use it a lot after the mods, just eliminating the gadgets...

Yes I eliminated mine. I put a mikuni on, now I hardly even have to use it . I think you could cut the cable leaving enough hanging out to put something to grip with your fingers and it would work just fine.

Yeah, I figured someone would throw the carb swap out there... I think that is my option for now, shortening the cable and bracketing it next to the carb, until I pick up a slide carb. Thanks for the reply.
