I buy electric chokes off eBay or Amazon. $15-20 vs $200+ for the EXACT same part from Arctic Cat. I keep a couple around the house to replace occasionally.
I bought one of the manual choke kits to play with and wasn’t impressed. Went back to the electric choke and I like it. Replaced a buddy’s electric choke on his Arctic Cat the other day and it’s back to working great.
Did you clean the carb when you replaced the choke?
