The lever has nothing to do with mixture. It simply turns the throttle bail to raise idle. Enrichment is automatic based on engine temp, and run time. All controlled though the ECM.I'm with KevinX on this one... they are not "chokes" they are "enrichers". Chokes control air flow... enrichers control fuel flow. Once you have started a bike with an enricher, you should close the enricher to half way... and when you take off close the enricher all the way and use the throttle to control fuel flow and idle... if you can do this then you will no longer have an enrichment problem. As Kevinx said, you are WAY over rich on start up... I'll give good odds that your plugs are fouled and your throttle bodies need a good cleaning. Do not despair... this problem has an easy fix and hasn't really damaged anything on the bike. Just clean your fuel and ignition systems and learn a new and proper way to use the enricher.

If you do not turn the lever. The fuel is still added in the enrichment cycle. The amount is determined by the ECM, and not the operator. The lever is just to increase the idle speed so that it does not flood out the bike. It is there because the 99-07 bikes have no IAC, and can not manipulate the idle speed through the ECM. it is not a choke, nor does it enrich the mixture in any waySome say potato some say potahto... in either case the lever sends more fuel into the system on start up... as if you were starting the bike with the throttle open... without twisting the throttle. It's an "enriched" start, just mechanically induced.
Is that green setting checked after you hit the mode button, or just looking at the unit with the bike running?why is it even there whats its purpose? i just checked my bike btw and the green setting has been at 0 so idk whatelse to do other then send it to moms i guess and spend some money
