    This thread got me thinking about starting my 78 up. It's been like 2 months and the battery was low (11.8 v), though it is 47 deg. F, so not crazy cold. It took quite a lot of charging and cranking and no to 1/2 to full choke combos to get her running. I might need to pull carbs too because once warmed and idling, I'd get an intermittent miss and stumble. Ah, the joys of classic bike ownership!

    also the enricher rode on mine only had 3 indent holes.there was no holes on the rode for the right hand side carb or spring and bearing t.but the choke on both sides works as it should .
