Sticky choke? I had this problem when I first got my RF. After much lubing and adjusting of cables and linkages, I came to the conclusion that the choke linkage is just a poor design. Hummm... how to explain this? The problem lays in the fact that the cable pulls the linkage arm from up above the individual plunger links. It tends to bind because it is not in-line with the plungers. I came up with a simple fix that I thought I would share. It's simply a plastic block with a hole in it that the linkage rod is attached to. The block slides on one of the aluminum tubes that hold the individual carb bodies together. It took a bit of filing to get the block to fit nicely into the linkage arm. A small bolt holds it in place. This stabilizes the whole affair and it has worked just fine ever since. Very smooth. The photos tell the story better than I can.
