Does a 2008 Harley super glide have a choke

This bike is fuel injected, therefore no manual choke. Choke or fuel enrichment in fuel injected terms is controlled by the ECM in conjunction with the engine temperature sensor. There is no 'reserve', but you will get a 'low fuel' warning light when fuel is low, same as cars.

My 1969 GTO takes forever to start in cold weather, once it catches and warms up it runs fine

Assuming the engine is in good shape and not in need of a major tune-up, check your carburetor choke. It's not closing when cold. Clean and adjust.

Get a service manual and follow the instructions. Far too complicated to cover here.

Also, make sure you know how to properly SET the choke on a cold start. Slowly push the gas pedal to the floor and let up. Start engine without touching gas. If it's REALLY cold, like 0 degrees, you can hold the pedal halfway down while starting, after setting the choke.

In morning Vespa hard starting like not getting gas runs real rough and stalls till gets warmed up

choke is not operating correctly, if it really really cold you could try adding a drop of silkolene pro fst to your fuel. made a world of difference for my bike in the winter

I have a suzuki Bandit 600 97 when it rains the bike runs really rough as if only on a couple of cylinders water must b getting in some where but where ?

Check the spark plug covers on top of the engine. Had the self same issue so swapped out the plugs and refitted the covers on top. Also sprayed the top of the engine (liberally!) with WD40.

Problem solved!!!

How do i adjust the choke on a 2005 honda shadow
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.

Engine stalls

I assume your bike has been in storage for awhile...Your engine is running on choke ONLY, that's why when you cover the air inlet it's the same as what the choke does.....your jets in the carb are clogged and will facilitate a removal and cleaning of the carbs my friend.....find a trusted mechanic and you'll be rolling in no time...Good Luck to you......Tim
