I have a 1995 Malibu Barbie KLR650. I have been having problems with the Choke when starting the bike. When I push the choke full on to start the bike cold it will not start, I have to pull it back to about half way and then it starts fine but my idle does not seem high enough when I compare it to my 2006 KLR650. I cleaned the carb/jets and reassembled everything including checking the carb plunger. When I got it all back together the choke acted the same and the bike would only start when the choke was 1/2 open then once running if I tried to open the choke up more the bike would just quit. The bike runs great but I just cannot get the choke to work as it should. Any ideas.
