It's not a choke, but rather the subthrottle valve actuator servo shaft cam (visible on right side, close to idle adjustment screw) that opens the main throttle for a fast idle... So I guess your subthrrottle valve actuator is not cycling when you turn ignition on, as it can normally be heard rotating open and shut once before you start engine?
A few others have had an actuator failure before, which is only avalable with the complete throttle bodies assembly.
You can read your FI trouble code(s) youself. Under the seat, along the right sub-frame rail is an orange/black wire with a bullet connector. This is the self-diagnosis terminal. In order to read out the CURRENT Service Codes (MODE 1), ground that wire with the KEY ON. The FI light will begin to flash codes. There will be a 5 second delay and then the codes begin. The first flash is always a LONG (1 sec) followed by either LONG or SHORT (0.5 sec) flashes. LONG flashes indicate TENS and short flashes ONES. One LONG followed by two SHORT = 12. Two LONG, one SHORT = 21. Three LONG, two short = 32, etc. There is an interval of 1.5 seconds between TENS and ONES. There is a 3 second interval between codes.
To recover codes set in memory (MODE 2); KEY ON, touch the self-diagnosis terminal rapidly to ground more than 5 times within 2 seconds. The lead must remain grounded (after 5 groundings) for the remainder of the diagnostic session. The codes will readout exactly as in MODE 1.
To clear codes from the ECU, pull the clutch in for more than 5 seconds.
