I never have to choke my ACE. Are you in cold weather? One more thing if you are using high octane fuel it will be harder to start and keep running. Always use regular 86 minimum for better starts and mileage. High octain doesn't give you more power....it is a slower burning/harder to ignite fuel.

Run some carburetor cleaner through the system to remove any dirt which may be interfering with the carb diapharms............Let idle for 15 to 20 min before trying acceleration.........Hope this helps you out.

How do i adjust the choke on a 2005 honda shadow


http://www.bikebandit.com/houseofmotorcycles/2005-honda-motorcycle-vt750dca-shadow-spirit-carburetor-component-parts/o/m2904sch406961
Not to sure about this one, ok, if the choke wont stay out, then try to trace the choke cable to the carby, have a close look and see which parts move on the carby when you activate the choke, some thing just needs to be tightened up, so that the choke stays on. Also, you say the bike stalls and runs rough, is this with the choke on? If yes, then that is just a sign that you dont need so much choke on. Just try half choke. Do you live in a warm climate? if so, then you dont need much choke . So there is no adjustment really, only by the amount of choke you apply. Also remember, never use the choke if the engine is already warm. And, only use the choke for the first start of the day, when the engine is stone cold. The correct way to to start a cold bike engine is, pull the choke on fully, crank over engine, but DO NOT give it throttle, (this defeats the purpose of using the choke), when engine fires up and starts, slowly push the choke in till a smooth, high idle is acheived. You should be able to ride off slowly, and push the choke off after about a mile.
