choke function on our bike?

Does the choke on our bikes actually function like a choke or it is just ariel dumped like some of the other bikes I've had?

There are "enrichers" (plungers) on each carb that provide more fuel when activated. The airflow is not restricted - there are no choke butterfly plates in them.

If your bike starts without it, guess there's no hurry... But it is getting cooler outside......

I agree with km. I almost never use choke but now that fall is here I'd start looking on ebay for one. i got a cable for 7 bucks incl. shipping and it's in really good shape. you may find something
on there as well

I am thinking of going with a different style one similar to another bike i had and fab up a bracket on the left side of the engine near the petcock for choke

It may seem like alot of hassle but its that much of a pita to get the controls off my apes
