    I've noticed lately that my choke on my Fatty doesn't always stay pulled out to the position I most recently put it in. Is this normal?

    Note from BUBBIE:

    Be careful as Plastic CAN break easily and you don't want that. Tighten Just enough to hold it out... Finger tightening not Pliers.

    And if you do it too tight then you will not be able to move the choke knob so it is a fine point between too loose and too tight

    My choke usually kind of gradually closes so that by the time I'm on the open road I just check to make sure it has gone completely in and if not push it in the rest of the way...

    Wow, thanks! As usual, if I had looked around a little bit I'd have found the answer.

    The choke-Enrichener works on friction, just a bit will do, careful with that plastic housing and nut, an 11/16th or 18 mm wrench and go easy make it part of your oil change check list:s
