I have the type choke cable that runs up through the center of the steering head. It looks like the cable pretty much precludes the possibility of using one of the front stands that lifts the front end with a pin in that same hole.

Does anyone know if the thumb-lever type choke cable is a straight swap and does it clear the coffin type clutch reservoirs?

TIA.

Running anything through the center of the steering head seems like a dumb idea. The 96 and 97 Monsters at least ran the cable around the side.

The thumb-type lever goes right next to the coffin-type clutch reservoirs.

Thanks Scott. There was one of the thumb lever types in the classifieds here, so I'm getting it to try out.

Gee, and I just lubed the original cable last month (try and hook that little SOB back up at the carb end without taking a bunch of parts off! Glad I've got like 3 different kinds of mechanical fingers and lots of different hemostats).

Works fine. I did away with my old-style one (when I went to clip-ons) and installed the thumb one. No problems.
