My bike has been sitting for quite some time now. I just went out to start it up and do some minor adjustments. It has never run problem free since I pulled the engine. But it has run and started fine. Now when I start it I have problems with the choke. With the choke on (towards me) the bike wont start. If I adjust the idle to where it will start with the choke it revs to 5,000 RPM. I can start the bike and get it to idle as long as the choke is off (away from me). However, I have to use my throttle to get it to start. While it is running if I push the choke on (towards me) it kills it rather than increasing the rpm. What is going on? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
where do you live? I live in fl its 80+ 10 months a year. i have no need for a choke. if i put my choke on my bike too will stall. if your carbs are rich the choking is not the best idea.
