I`m having a swine of a job getting a choke cable to fit and run nicely on my imola that has a PWK 28mm.
A standard cable is way too short and stiff. I need a really flexible short cable . I can solder a nipple on no problem its getting a really flexible cable to sit property??
It either fouls badly on the toolbox or the carb body or the tank ......grrrr
Any bright ideas anyone ??

I'm sure I had somewhere a 90 degree piece for a PWK which made the cable come out horizontal

I use a throttle outer and inner and a rotating 90 degree bend. I make the cable really quite long and take past the carb and back again. Trial and error and soldering nipple on choke lever end. I personally found that all the standard sizes do not sit fair and square in the choke adjuster.
