With new Premiers on my 73 T140V Bonneville I have mounted new cables and cannot find a happy route where the choke lever (mounted under the left carb stack) operates without undue force.
The cables have been all pre-oiled with thin oil while the routing resembles what I think I had before and compared to photographs looks the way it should be.
I know somebody will say scrap them but I do not want to do that.
Ideas very welcome.

If you put the lever on the handle bars, you can ensure a nice cable run, and you can keep your eye on the lever as those pesky chokes can want to close by themselves !
