    Choke

    2009 RS 125: How do I adjust the choke on this bike? When cold, it takes a while for the bike to start. Wondering if the choke is not set right. Once it is running, if you apply the choke, you can certainly notice it, so it is working to some degree.

    A recent study found the average Canadian walks about 900 miles a year. Another study found Canadians drink, on average, 22 gallons of beer a year. That means, on average, Canadians get about 41 miles to the gallon. Kind of makes you proud to be Canadian, doesn't it??!!

    difficulty in starting is usually low compression. Do a compression test.

    Your bike also has the crappy pneumatic fuel tap. They fail, causing difficulty in starting.

    Adjusting the choke. Is there fuel ? is there sufficient compression ? there is cable adjustment, there is change the choke jet,but its a waste of time if the other 2 are not correct. pjme do a large bore manual switch which is much better https://www.pjme.co.uk/acatalog/Apri..._Carburre.html

    10th part down....
