CHOKE PROBLEM

I have a 05 wr 450 and after you pull the choke out, it goes right back in as soon as you let go of it. Does anyone know of a fix for this? Its kinda awkward to hold the choke out and kickstart it when its cold. I did a search for a fix but the only thing I could find is to replace the choke assembely. Its only $30 but if its a easy fix like replacing an o-ring or something then I would rather try to fix it. Thanks in advance!

Mine does the same thing. Just hooked a piece of safety wire to pull it out enough to start it.

 

My buddy had the same problem and just replaced is entire choke knob assembly for $32 and viola. Obviously I need to do the same thing as you.

Yeah, it's an all day project:

 

Unscrew the choke nut

Remove plunger

Clean

Replace o rings 

Lube

Re-install

 

Safety wire hook huh?

 

Remind me not to ride in Indiana.

Thanks for the input. Do you have a part number for the o-ring? I couldn't see any in the parts diagram...

The gas goes inside the big thing in front of the seat, before you ask.
