That's the one. I am concerned at how clean your bike is and why I can see a cast wheel rather than spokes???My AT is running really rough at around 3500rpm ... feels like small taps on the brake. Checked the front plugs last night, and they were pitch black again (changed them last weekend)
Are there any other possibilities for these symptoms than the bleedin' choke? I checked the rubber collars from carbs to cylinder, and they look fine as far as I can tell ...
Just want to be prepared for this weekend, so I can check everything while having the tank off.
Brake pad mounting pin cover? Is this the one?

Good condition sparkplugs and a good battery are a must. Then I use two hand to start the bike. One to press the starter button (left) the other (right) to open the throttle when required. I press the starter button with no throttle applied at all, it usually catches and fires instantly, then the right hand just has to gently open the throttle to keep the engine running, I tend to ride off straight away, I'm not a warmer upper. This works definitely down to minus 4 after an overnight camp at a rally last year during that hideous winter.How do your bikes start in the cold without a choke i was thinking of doing this mod myself but after it failed to start without it i decided it has to stay
