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.

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.

That's because of excess fuel vapor in the intakes from evaporation when parked though, not because of the FI system.

My vote is with Pat; my garage is around 60 deg F, yet starts instantly and runs idles just fine when rolled out into 40's F. Too chickenshit to ride when it's colder, so cannot say all would be fine under colder conditions.

takes a 40-50° differential from 60 to 20 or less, starts great, just won't idle without a little throttle

Mark

mine runs fine at 40° as well


takes a 40-50° differential from 60 to 20 or less, starts great, just won't idle without a little throttle for the first 30 seconds or more the colder it is

I don't buy the fuel vapor theory

water temp sensor makes the ECU think the engine has already warmed up enuf to idle without a rich mixture, if left out in cold, where there is no differential in temp, the FI works as expected

Mine never runs a "Hi Idle " same friggin 1100rpm lope all the Damm time.. asked dealer to adjust it to 1300rpm....Nope..
I guess this can only be done thru the ECU?

The ECM regulates the idle speed. It can be reset to the default if an adjustment, to the TPS for example, changes it. It really can't be set to a particular value though.

Since new ECU has been installed on my bike, there are some higher revs for first 10-15 seconds, then revs start to go down. New ECU since October last year, so still too early to say how those revs are going to behave in extremely hot weather.

I agree with RANDYO.
