The 6mm holes on the left side below the rack is where the tool kit use to be.

You can remove the clutch switch and connect the wires (and side stand switch) and/or remove the relay. There was a discusion a few post back. I found a MSR lever/perch assembly on ebay that works fine.

Do you disagree with this Webster's definition:


transitive verb

3
: to enrich the fuel mixture of (a motor) by partially shutting off the air intake of the carburetor


If not, does an error become no longer an error if it is repeated enough times, or by the right people, or in some official-seeming manner?

I have been able to purchase non-OEM clutch levers that have the little cluthc start "finger" on it.

The easiest thing is to disable the cltuch start. Very easy to do. Follow the wires from the lever side mechanism to the wire bundle under the headlight. the wires are yellow. Disconnect the wires going to the mech, and recconnet the wires on the harness side. They are already male and female. Just pull a little slack out from the harness so you do not strech and disconect the wires when you are at full lock.

As a bit of a word nerd myself, I feel your pain. However, and I'm not much bothered by this 'choke' issue one way or the other, it appears that you have crossed the line to purposely pissing people off by demanding that everyone subscribe to your etymological paradigm.

Since you own a motorcycle related business, this public antagonism and 'I'm right and you are wrong' attitude might not be in your best interest. You are obviously well educated and intelligent, and I respect that, but you're not making friends (or future customers) here.

Peace

I'm not interested in prostituting myself. I was brought up to tell the truth. If that means I don't sell another motorcycle part, then so be it.

Derek

Welcome to the internet. Winning is not an option, accept things as they are here....the rest of us don't seem to mind. If I wanted to discuss terminology I'd have joined a different forum...

Move along people....nothing to see here.....

We now return to the regularly scheduled motorcycle based discussion.

BTW gramatical and punctation errors in my post mean nothing to me.

So, here's a pic from last Sunday's ride. This is the Burnt Corn, AL general store/post office. It sits on the site of the Old Federal Road and is an area full of interesting early American history.

Can you point out the post where I made a demand?
