That will make a world of difference as to what we would recommend that you check. In a used bike it could be that the jetting is not spot on, or the Slow Jet may have been changed too small, or the ACV could be leaking. Or in a new bike the plunger rod on the choke pull could be broken inside....
More info please.

and conditions are the same, something is either dirty/plugged up or vibrated loose.
Check Air filter, carb boot (for leaks), fuel screw setting, then tear into the carb to clean it out.
If it still has a bunch of vacuum lines, check them for leaks too. Since it's easy to knock one loose, check them first.

my choke wont stay out either, well just a slight shaking snaps it back in
so I was wondering, is that a fix it yourself option?
once I already threw apart the hot start knob (external as on 98, 99 models), and its just a tiny flexible bent wire, that hooks up in the small chanel cut in the rod
did a bit of cleaning and retransforming of the wire and it works perfectly
mechanism for choke is probably the same, just there is a it more work involved, as removal of the carb etc
