choke cable move

is it possible to remove the choke cable from the bars and have a setup with a nob on the side of the carb to just pull out .. trying to tidy up the front end so want less cables

Yes it is. I moved mine too behind the custom carburetor cover.
Then I used a control box from a 650.

I just cut my stock cable sleeve to about 2" and the stranded core at about 5"....did a loop and soldered the core to make a finger hole. Now I can just slip my finger through the loop and pull while starting if I need the choke....I only need it on rare occasion and for just a few seconds....so I just release it after the bike is running for 10-15 seconds... cost = $0.00
