Since my son got the bike the choke has not worked properly. If we try to start the bike using the choke it floods. how can i reset the choke. It has been many years since i had bikes and i am rusty to say the least.
As i remember yhe choke is not adjustable
this is asimple carb and may just benefit a simple strip and clean.The carb flooding may just be down to the float jet not seating properly due to dirt on the seat
hope this helps

"Crank" and "turn over" mean exactly the same thing. I think you mean it won't "fire". How did your choke cable break on the highway? You shouldn't have been pulling (closing) the choke at that point - does that ride have other issues?
It might be flooded now - try letting it sit for several hours, then try starting with the throttle WIDE OPEN and no choke - that helps clear extra gas out of the cylinders.
You might also need to pull the spark plugs and dry them out thoroughly.
You said the carbs were cleaned.
Did it work ok after that, or is that when the problem started?
Do you use the choke to start it when cold? When warm/hot? not at all because you figure its getting too much gas as it is?
Usually if you flood it (by overchoking), you open the throttle wide open (to draw in more air to lean the mixture) while cranking starter.
Beings you had the spark plugs out you could have cranked it then, and let the engine compression blow the excess gas out the spark plug holes.
your BMW75 has a cold start sensor fitted to its fule system the choke leaver dose nothing but raze the reves a little its not a choke,,,thats withing the fule system if the sensor is not working right it wont tell the fule pump to enrich the fule mix and it will be hard to start from cold,,also if you start the bike up you must run it till its hot or the choke will stay on and flood up the engine the next time you try to start up
the choke sensor is in the water jaket, try changing this part first
You need some carb work (or should I say fuel delivery system?) on this classic motorcycle. You might get away with using some fuel injector cleaner - I would try this first - to dlean the carb (fuel delivery system)
How is your gas? Fresh?
It can be frustrating to try to solve this type problem. Good luck. You can always take it to the Honda Shop ... it is getting colder now, ya know.
Anyway, good riding to you my friend. Thank you for posting at FixYa.com. Please vote
Sounds like your flooding it out with the choke out. Try the next time you go to start the bike when it's cold with the choke out and when it starts push the choke all the way in and keep it running with the throtle. If it runs better after doing this then your flooding it on start up. Use 1/2 choke to start cold and see what it does. Good Luck
It sounds like the choke line may not have been routed correctly when the new one was installed. Remove the gas tank and check to see that the line is not beingstretched anywhere along the way AND that the gas tank when re-installed is not stretching the line. The line may have been kinked when installed. Look at the mechanical movement of the choke at the carb. Does it operate freely? Remove the air filter and look inside the center of the carb, (you may need to use a small mirror for this), does it look like the choke is opening and closing properly when the choke is moved on and off?
