How Does a Motorcycle Work?

  • Once the ignition switch is on, the KILL switch closed, the transmission in neutral, and the choke pulled out, the motorcycle can be started by pressing the Starter Switch. The actual switch may say Start or just have a symbol on it.
  • The motor turns over and starts.
  • After a few minutes, the choke is gradually released until the bike has a low idle.
  • If the engine is already warm, the choke may not have to be used at all to start.
