    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.

    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.

    Looks like the stock one that comes with the bike.

    You are either a little troll with far too much time on your hands or a complete and utter twat. I haven't figured out which but either way, you don't know when to STFU.

    Here's a photo. Contact Suzuki and let us know what they say.

    That's the stock toolbox (plastic, with a rubber cap on it held on by friction). It's big enough to hold the stock tools but not much more. I have the one for my bike, but it has an aftermarket rack so the mounting points for the toolbox aren't there any more. I'll just keep it aside for whenever I sell the bike - I have my own kit put together from what I used in working on the bike, slightly better tools and more of them. I'm sure someday I'll spring for a fancy toolbag/roll/box/tube for it (fancy at the KLR level, not the BMW level:lol3) but in the meantime I'll probably strap it on the rack.

    They are getting kind of rare now. The caps are super rare as they tend to fall off. Then people jsut remove the box and throw it away. My buddy made a cap from the bottom of a plastic oil container and strapped it on.

    If you want to give me a lot of money for a tool box with no cap PM me, I have one laying around:D

    That's my kind of fancy. Somewhere in here there's a tool container made from parts of TWO plastic oil jugs sleeved over each other. Even fancier (and pretty effective-looking).

    So in your mind name calling, insults, foul language, and ordering people around are preferable to factual technical information?

    All right kids! I subscribe to this thread to learn about my little DR and hopefully pass some of my limited knowledge along as well.

    Take your schoolyard slap and tickle game to Jo Momma or PM each other to your hearts content.

    Rant off!

    You again. No, I don't give a rat's ass about Webster's idea of what a true choke is. Like on old cars, with actual chokes. We all know this. Everyone knows this. Everyone knows bike chokes are not true chokes. We all know this, even you. And we don't care. At least the rest of us don't care.

    You don't understand at all, do you? Nobody cares but you. Call it a cold start enrichment valve all you want. That's fine with me. When you get tired of saying, "you know, the choke" so the person you are talking to knows what you mean, you can just call it a choke like everyone else.

    If Suzuki, BMW and every motorcyclist on Earth want to call it a choke, it works for me.

    Don't you have something more worthwile to get all bent out of shape over?
