I have blanked my choke off. The plunger and spring are taken off the cable, placed inside the carb and the blanking covers from the front caliper pins are used to hold them in. I have had no trouble starting my bike, even in the recent sub-zero weather (it's all about teqnique). My tickover is perfect at all times, I get about 50-55mpg at motorway speeds plus some town work. My plugs are a perfect colour. Small children look admiringly at me when I pass. Nuns swoon at my overall goodness.

1 Varadero/45,000 miles ridden (of 68,000 miles on the bike), it's all still new to me!
