Only carbureted engines have chokes. Your bike has fuel injection. Sensors combine various temperature and air pressure inputs providing information to the computer that allows it to program the proper amount of fuel for all conditions.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

The fuel injection system alters the fuel mixture as required. There is no manual choke.

My 2004 Kawasaki 1600 Mean Streak was FI and had a manual "choke" pull leaver for cold weather starting. They do exist on FI bikes. The Strom just doesn't have it.

That's an old style low tech FI that needs a manual assist.

Pat doesn't mention the age of the bike . Old ones like mine have an idle adjustment but later ones may not. It's like your new cars, it's all worked out for you.
