 +====== Homemade Choke Relocation on a Mikuni HSR ======
 +The coil was relocated to the left side where the choke used to be. \\
 +This homemade bracket will help to relocate the choke to the right side between the tank and the top of the carb. \\

 +
 +The bracket was pre-made with a drill-press,​ band saw, files and belt sander before pics were taken. \\
 +It was made from a piece of aluminum (1-1/​2"​ x 1-1/2" x 1/8"). \\
 +
 +Pictured is a top view of a before part, the lid off the Mikuni HSR-42, and the finished part. \\
 +3rd pic below is the bracket in place on the lid. \\
 +A hole was drilled (1 size under 3/8") and a band saw was used to make the slot. \\
 +The bracket was cut shorter and dressed up. \\

 +This is the top view. \\
 +A punch was used to mark the locations of the holes. Note the notch in on the lower right, it's clearance for the accelerator pump adjustment. \\
 +Slightly longer button head screws (M4) were used to attach the assembly. \\ As you can see, the '​ears'​ were shortened (leaving as much meat as possible). \\
 +This also shows that 1" material would be fine to use. \\
 +The small web left at the bottom rests nicely on the lid which helps out. \\

 +Here's a few shots installed with a custom round air cleaner. The choke is on center. \\
