Motorcycle Glossary Dictionary Term - Enrichener

Enrichener: The Enrichener injects an extra amount of fuel to assist in starting the motorcycle. If the throttle is opened, the function of the enrichener is defeated. The effect of the enrichener is to provide extra fuel to assist starting. This is similar to the function of the choke but the choke only restricts air intake (which has the effect of making the mixture more rich in fuel). The enrichener has been used by BMW and Harley-Davidson. Most motorcycles have knobs or levers to pull out to decrease the air intake for chokes or increase the fuel intake for enricheners. After the engine has warmed up, the enrichener may be pushed back in.
