I put a new 930 on a 67' triumph tr6r. I also wanted to get the choke working again so I bought a lever and cable.

When all hooked up, and choke on, the air valve/plunger inside the slide does not descend all the way. If you open the throttle all the way you can see 1/4" between the bottom of carb throat and bottom or choke plunger. With slide in idle position, the choke plunger is above the slides cut off angle. Not very effective.

Should the valve hit the bottom of carb throat?

Thanks,
Matt

the choke has no reason to go all the way down to the bottom, when the slide is in the closed position there is nothing to choke, it's running on the idle circuit with almost all the air cut off.

Thanks Tony.

So it's pretty much useless at idle? Whether it's on or off when idling, it does not change the way the bike warms up.

I had the impression that it would work like "other" choke systems, fast idle when on, etc....

most choke systems like the ones on a car have a engine speed cam that opens the butterflys more and also a choke that increases the fuel to air ratio until the engines is warmed up.
On a motorcycle it's assumed you have your hand on the throttle so there is no need for a engine speed cam.
