Hard starting ---Choke does not appear to work

bike is very hard to start in cold weather in canada.

Any suggestions?

I don’t think the choke is connected also as i set it all the way down and it does nothing to move up RPM.

The starter turns and the engine cranks…

Also it appears the bike floods easily???

Any ideas…please help

Sounds like you may have a broken choke cable, if you remove the seat and tank you should be able to see the choke operating when you move the lever.

It could also be jammed on slightly causing the flooding, maybe the linkages on the carbies are binding up?
