Hi fjorn. Yes, you are correct. When I said open or closed I was referring to the choke valve and have the terminology reversed in my first post. As you could probably tell I'm not too familiar with carburetors!
What I meant to say was:
"I normally leave the choke fully open (like you would during normal riding) when the bike is just sitting. When I try to start the engine in the morning with the choke fully closed I always have to give the throttle a little twist to rev the engine and get it to start."
