explain choke to me please

Recommended Posts

I guess this puts me in the dummy category but the carb on my bike doesn't make sense to my ignorant mind.

the throttle moves a tube up and down to control the air and fuel.

the choke is a butterfly valve. Push the choke cable all the way closed and the butterfly is wide open. Pull the choke cable and the butterfly closes. That seems reverse i.e. the pulling the choke cable should open the butterfly to give it more air and fuel??
