I actually appreciated motolab's post because I now have a better understanding of the functionality. IMHO, using accurate and proper terminology is important because we all (me especially) struggle from time to time trying to figure out what we are trying to figure out :> :> :>

The old Guzzis I work on use a Dell'Orto carburetor (VHB 29) that has a choke. Only, it isn't a choke at all. A choke richens the mixture by reducing the air intake. The Dell'Orto system acts as an enricher, adding fuel instead of reducing air. The end result is the same, but it is very helpful to know what is happening in case something starts to act funny.
