  1. can anyone explain how a choke actually works??

  2. Off the top of my head a choke restricts the amount of air that passes through into the engine (hence the name 'choke') so the fuel mixture is richer (more fuel) than what is normally required. I know that this is desirable when the temperature is low, but as to the exact why I am unsure.

    Damn people posting while I'm typing! :p
  3. Sorry

    :cry: :cry: :cry:
  4. It's called a choke because the more you fiddle with it the less chance your bike will start, then when the battery is dead flat you want to choke the crap out of the nearest person to you. Hence it's called a choke.
