On my 2001 XR650L, if I set the "choke" lever to full on or half on, it stays at that position. With the 1994 (which actually says "choke" on the lever) once the engine has started, the lever moves to the off position by itself within about 10 seconds. The bike is rather cold blooded, so I end up riding while holding that lever with my left index finger, which is kind of awkward at slow speeds when I need to use the clutch. I'm hoping that maybe one of you has run into this issue before and has a nice solution. If not, I'll figure out something and report back. The only thing I've checked so far is that the 10mm bolt that goes through the middle is definitely tight. I might have to come up with some shims or something.
