Re: How a choke in a carburettor works....explanation!
So after all the hints, we have a conclusion, the choke is an air mechanism, whose secondary function is to raise rpm and meter more fuel.
That's the distinction I was driving for, because all too often there is a misconception that there is a choke jet, or that the choke itself is metering fuel. So my questions in the other thread, that asked you all the ponder it, and gave you all the information that the mechanism opened the passage from venturi to chamber above diaphragm, was merely an exercise to make you arrive at a forgone conclusion and to remove the misconception of a choke fuel jet mechanism in our carbs.
[QUOTE=senator8]Haha! You're more than 1%. My bike ran perfectly all year. All I did was oil changes and thumbed the starter. While my competitors had bikes and carbs in pieces at the track I was enjoying a coffee and saying "thanks Chris"
