Purchased honda activa before 2 days in andhra pradesh, 1 day after faced starting problem. and after applying choke it started. My worry is is the bike having any problem? was dealer delivered repaired bike to me? or is it general issue which will happen to any other very new bikes also? Honda executive at the time of delivery told me that please start bike after applying choke, so engine life will be good. Is that true? after facing starting issue, i'm doubting honda executive words. Can you also, explain me what are the check should be taken place while buying new bike in andhra pradesh? It is really appreciate if you provide answers to my queries. Thanks in advance
If an engine has a manual choke it will need to be used for starting in most cases. You might get it to start with no choke sometimes, but needing to use it doesn't indicate a problem.
Factors such as temperature, how long since it was last started, and even humidity can affect starting. After a while you will get to know when your bike needs the choke and when it doesn't, but never hesitate to use it.
