Choke button glitch
Posted June 24, 2002 - 10:08 AM
The choke on my 99 YZ400 wont stay out. It will stay out for a sec, but as soon as the bike lights up it snaps shut. My buddy's 98 wr400 does the same thing only his wont stay out at all. Is it just the choke shaft or is there some thing else that is causing this.
I saw that the choke assy is only like $15 but I dont know if this is the problem. Any ideas?
Also what is the best bar mounted hot start unit. My stock one took a poop. If I am replacing it I might as well upgrade it.

I have a 99 YZ and although I haven't looked at this one, the choke on some of my two strokes have done this. There are four plastic fingers that drop into a slot in the shaft. Take the choke off and wrap the smallest zip-ty you can find around those fingers. I did this mod on my KX 250 two years ago and when I sold it, it still was working great. I also did this mod on a buddys 2000 ktm. Try it, it may work.
