Automatic choke

Has it happened to anyone before that the choke hasnīt come on? Both times today I have used the bike, it hasnīt started up as it normally does, even after a whole 12 hours between useage...does this mean anything?

Depends on the ambient temp - warm day?

I would guess 70 -80 degrees F. I've had this happen when it was summer, but not often--I push the starter and never touch the throttle at all and always let it go thru its normal procedure--idles high for 15-30 sec, drops to about 1600rpms and when its ready drops to 1300rpms--then I go.
Hope this helps--if the bike is running good I am sure there is no problem, these bikes have a great reputation!

It means the bike will run without fast idle accoding to whats in the map in the computer. mine doesn't always come on , but it has never been a problem. Its temature related (ambiant ) and unless it stalls don't worry about it.
