I am a new Victory rider (I had a 2000 Suzuki Marauder until an SOB in South Carolina rear ended me...).
I bought a 2007 Vegas 8ball with 2k miles on it. Everything is blacked out except the new chrome swept pipes I had installed.
I am still new at the maintenance and repair world (but want to learn). When the dealer was running through the basics of the bike with me and showing me locations of some parts he told me I need to go with a full choke EVERY time I start the bike. I should let it warm up for a couple minutes, then pull it back and ride.
With my old bike I only used the choke when it was cold or needed a little extra kick when the bike hadn't been riden in a while.
Do I really need a full choke and wait 2 minutes before I ride EVERY TIME?
If engine temp is below 125F then you want to turn the bars to the left, and engage fast idle to get engine to run at 12-1500RPM. Do this while you are putting on gloves, etc, and you will be fine. Engine temp above 125f, and there is no need
