The k100 has no choke fitted to it,,,there is a leaver that lifts the inlet butterflys but no choke as you call it,,its all fule injected,,,
when the engine is cold the engine temp censor tells the fule computer to inritch the fule mix so the engine will start up easy
therefor you need to run the engine till its warm before the temp censor turns off the extra fule however have a look on this web sight,,,www.maxbmwmotorcycles.com....this will help you out

My 1986 BMW k100rt dip beam won't come on and I can't seem to find a fuse for it . High beam comes on if I push the pass switch but won't stay on


I would suspect the handlebar switch for your lights as obviously power is getting through with the passing switch. Make sure the contacts are clean and no wire broken away.

How set up a manual chokein a ford falcon


I put one in a 1970 Chevelle. I bought the hand choke cable with pull lever and under dash mounting bracket. Mounted pull lever under the dash, drilled a hole in the firewall as high as I could, ran the cable out to the engine compartment. Mounted the holding bracket to the motor as close to carb as possible on the intake, then attached to the choke arm that works the butterfly plate in the carb throat. Cut to fit as tight as possible with butterfly plate closed and push lever all the way in. As you pull the hand lever out inside the car, it opens the butterfly plate to achieve the optimum air fuel mixture you desire to make the engine run smoothly. Sometimes you must go the opposite, lever out and plate closed, depending on the way the carb is set up, and work it the opposite way.

Universal fuel pump versus genuine fuel pump for BMW K100RT
