When I pull out the choke it slowly returns. Is this the norm? I'm used to a choke, that when pulled out, stays until you press it back down into position. I can post a video if I'm not making any sense.

Check the linkage is moving the choke butterfly shafts.

Not sure about the '78, but on my '82 the button that the cable passes through right at the handlebars adjusts. I tighten it when my choke cable starts to slide.

Mine does that very slowly, maybe over a minute or two, from 1/2 choke (under 2000 RPM). I've decided to treat it as a feature rather than a defect. When it warms up and doesn't need the choke anymore, it shuts down to normal idle all by itself. :good:

I like that philosophy D-50Dave. I now have a new feature on my bike!

Choke linkage will move and be spring loaded even if the actual choke butterfly are stuck.

Man, my 1 white board is getting full. I think I'll make a "to do board" and a "need to buy" board.

Easy! Just take it one item at a time. Wrenching and riding it isn't so much how fast you go as it is how little you slow.

My '78 has a tightening screw at the base of the choke cable. I know what you mean about the to do and to buy lists, it's easy to outspend the monetary value of the bike, I'm at about 2 times what I can get for it versus what I've spent on it...lol. It's a good thing I don't plan on selling my oldwing!

I just noticed you're from Flag Pond. About a hunna miles from where I grew up - in the booming metropolis of Hickory.

What a great place to be living! Good luck getting that 'wing sorted soon!
