i just went to have a look at a cbr250rr on saturday. he was like a mechanic selling for a client. for the people who dont live in sydney, it was one of the hottest day we had this year. when he started the bike up i notice he was using the choke. i questioned him why he used the choke. he answered if a bike is made with a choke its suppose to start with it, giving me the impression its suppose to start with the choke every time. i thought that you are only suppose to use the choke when you are having problems starting a bike e.g. cold morning, not enough fuel. ive also read Typhoon's thread on choke starting, he stated that a choke is there for a reason, use it properly. which to me only use the choke when the bike is having problems starting is the mech trying to hide something by choke starting it and trying to give me impression it starts first go? or is he right about choke starting the bike most of the time?
