I've recently been restoring a 1984 Yamaha QT50, which overall has been going pretty smoothly, although I've run into one major snag. The choke/starter cable on it is froze up and missing the tip that goes into th carb. I've looked all over ebay, amazon, and even emailed Treatland.tv (they told me to ask around here) and I can't find the right cable anywhere. Theres one on amazon, but its over $40, and in the reviews, it says its still not the correct cable. Does anyone know of a suitable substitute cable I could use, or a way to convert the carb from a manual choke to an automatic (or maybe convert it so theres a choke rod on the top of the carb rather than using a cable)?
