Chick won't stay up on ktm 200exc?

Recommended Posts

On my kleihin carburetor the choke won't stay up. I have the carb off right now and I haven't taken apart the choke part yet could it be a possibility there's sludge preventing it from locking when I pull it up?

*Choke

Had the same problem with mine. The detent was worn out. I just bought a new one. About $15 IIRC.

Who needs a girlfriend when you have a sexy bike that never complains .

Just put a little zip-tie around the rubber boot. That will hold it up.

Cool I will try the zip tie method. Where do I put it at? Can you post a picture so I can see?

I would post a picture but my IMS over-sized gas tank makes it a PITA to take the choke plunger out.

 

It's real easy to do, un-thread the choke plunger assemble, be careful it's only plastic, once you have it removed pull the choke lever up and you will see where the detent engages with the little plastic fingers, your plastic fingers are weak, this is where you will take a small zip tie and cinch it round the fingers, then test the lever operations before putting it back in the carb.
