For those that know,,manual choke.

My KLR has the cable-less choke mod and it works as intended except,
it won't stay pulled out. Should I replace it or just get the wrenches out??

There should be a nylon-tipped setscrew that is used to set the friction/tension on the shaft. Find it and give it 1/1000th of a turn.

That ought to just about do it.

Thanks Tom, I'll get the wrenches out.


Yep just like you said, a tiny Allen screw, at about the six'oclock
position.
