    Do I 'REALLY' need to rmove choke plates?

    I am going pre-mix and fitting a primer kit this weekend.
    Iv'e had my flame arrestors off, and it looks a bigger job than I probably have time to do to remove the choke plates.
    How much, if anything will i loose by leaving them in place and fixed open?
    Thanks

    I think Spud left his in and he has one of the fastest 1200s

    Leaving them in actually raises the carb signal (which is a good thing)

    I would agree with philip_gpr it should be fine.
    Make shure your choke plates are perpendicular to the bore.

    Thanks both of you.
    It makes sense about the carb signal. I never even thought of that untill you metioned it!

    Do it right, yank 'em and check out the carbs while your at it.


    IF you are talking about 44s on a GP, the have good vac signal unless they are bored.
