I cannot notice any difference in rpm, cold starting or anything when I turn the enricher valve on. Before I start digging into this, what are you guys experiences? I.e: if the bike is warm and you hit the enricher, does it sputter and spit like a carburated bike with the choke on while warm?



This don't seem right to me....

I believe the toggle only increases your idle, that is it. It is not really a choke, but more of a fast idle.



With the fuel injection you don't need the choke. But I certainly need the fast idle when it is cold.

Well, granted things have been pretty warm here (lets say about 50 F last weekend when I fired it up), but I notice nothing in the way of increased idle speed when the lever is down. My suspicions are that the same guy that put on my front blinkers adjusted my enrichment switch.....

Hi Blitzkrieg,

Easy is right, if you activate the lever and look on the right side of the bike, where the throttle cables are attached to the 'Carbs' (air intake assemblies and injectors) you can see the throttle linkage accelerate. Basically what happens with injection engines when this is done is that as you accelerate, you open the butterflies on the air intakes, and the throttle position sensor (attached to the butterfly linkage on the left hand side of the bike), also turns ( adjusting the readout of the tps) which tells the little black box (engine management), to inject more fuel and adjust the timming.

That's more or less it.

regards GibZX12

Hi,

I certainly notice a difference in RPM when I first start the bike on cold mornings, but the "choke" is only 1/2 on. Easy and gibzx12 are both right. By opening the throttle bodies and allowing more air in, the management system will sense that more fuel is required to sustain the engine from stalling and provides it,hence the slight increase in RPM. (unlike my previous 7's and 9's which scream up to 4,000 rpm or stall with little or no control between)!

Regards

Ted
