Re: Why a choke on an FI bike? gsxr 750

i dont know much of your year bike, but im guessing its a less advanced fuel injection system. Might not be computer controled and requires a boost of fuel in cold starts. Does it have O2 sensors?? Maybe someone else can chime in

Free bump for ya

Fast idle switch. The new bikes have an automatic fast idle for cold starts. If you crank our fast idle switches way up it becomes cruise control.

thers not an 02 sensor then wich is an open loop system.. closed loop system has 02 sensor and gives that info to the ecu makin it run rich. you have to do it manually therefore a choke is needed

Not true at all.

The "choke" lever on an fi bike if so equipped does not change fueling at all. Rather it just opens the throttle plates a tiny bit for a higher idle speed.


Later models are still open loop but use auto high idle servos to do the job based on other engine sensors.

Yup. Adjust the cable at the throttle.bodies so that it raises the idle aot more and it will hold speed on highway if you adjust it right

Sweet I'll have to test and see what speed it will hold me at right now. I assume that it's gear dependent as to what speed you'll hold. Time to ride, adjust, rinse and repeat till I find that sweet spot!

Re: Why a choke on an FI bike? gsxr 750

I had mine adjusted so that at 60-65 indicated it would hold wide open. That is about 70-75 real speed and worked fine.

Lower gears each will hold at a given speed, but much less useful
