I'm working on a BSA Rocket3.The air sliders have me confused.When I got the bike, engine was out of the frame.The throtle valves were all hooked up so thats no problem.The air sliders had about an inch of cut cable sticking out of the carb.I have no idea of how where or why these hook up to.Any info to shed some light on this for me would be greatly appeciated.Heres a pic of the air slider inside the throtle valve.

The cable goes down through the mixing chamber cover, through the brass guide, through the spring and anchors in the notch in the bottom of the choke slide. When all assembled and adjusted properly they should bottom out in the carb throat, or they will have little or no effect. You're going to get a lot of advice about tossing them out and running without the chokes at all, but personally I like to leave the chokes in place because does assist with starting in cold weather.

Thanks man....I didn't reslize this was the choke.I thought the ticklers were kinda the choke.Now actually the other end is where I was hoping for an answer.Is there a pull knob or lever these cables tie into?i would assume there's an assembly to take it from 3 to a 1 pull cable?

Ah yes, the other end...yep, they ought to go to a three way splitter and then to a lever so you can operate them.
