I think the temp dropping made everything really stiff and when I went to open the choke, the plastic lever broke off.
Is this easy to replace?
How do I use the choke without it?
It's quite easy to replace - until you do, you can pull and hold the cable. A bit annoying but possible - had to do that on my old race bike.
Also sounds like the cable needs lubing, they'll corrode and get stuck over time. While you have the cable off anyway, make a small paper funnel around the inner cable and give it a good dose of WD-40. Might want to do the same with the throttle cables while you're at it :thumbup

Who needs a choke, it does nothing important. j/k. If only the tab part broke, you might be able to still use it. But do you really need to lube cables if the inner sleeve if it is like nylon or something that has very low friction even without lube.
