GL1200 LTD choke not working

Post by Justin1200 »



Hi guys, fall is upon us here. When I start the bike and it’s 5 degrees Celsius (about 40 Fahrenheit), it doesn’t rev any higher than the idle (around 1000rpm). I would like to think that it would rev around 1500rpm until it warms up a bit.
Anyone have any insight for me? Thanks!

Hi Justin,

This is normal. The LTD is a fuel injected model. It has no choke. The electronic is regulating the air/ fuel mixture depending on the temperature.
Mine is always around 1000 rpm no matter the temperature outside or of the engine.

I hope this helps.

Drive safe,
Jens
