Question Choke doesn't go all the way off

Choke on my 06' doesn't go all the way off after the engine gets hot. Since the bike is fairly new I would think the cable is still reasonably greased or the cable is stretched? Does anyone else have this problem?

I also have an 06, but the choke cable is fine. I would think that there has to be an adjustment that you can make on the cable.

Do you have any free play in the lever? There should be about 1/8" movement before it starts to engage at the carbs.
Did this just start to happen?

Yes, there was about 1/8th inch play in the lever, but it wouldn't go completely off unless I pushed it off. It started happening a few months ago.

I gave it a shot of Tri-flow under the lever and near the carb's, but I won't be able to tell if that helped until colder weather rears its ugly head again.

Are you saying that the choke doesnt snap back? If thats the case, then no, its not supposed to snap back, you have to push it back with your thumb or finger.
