1988 trx300 choke plunger

So i bought a choke plunger for my atv and the buyer i bought it from was on amazon and misleaded the title saying it fits on 1988 models. So now i have a long plunger that wont fit and there is only 1 seller that sells it on amazon but ill have to wait 12 days to get it. Does anyone know how to make the plunger fit?

the long plungers have to be used with the correct cable and headlight assembly ------------ there is a kit that uses the longer plunger where a short plunger is usually used , there is an adaptor that takes up the extra slack so the long plunger can be used with a short plunger cable and switch ------ many of the 300 riders around here that have snorkels , plug up the choke plunger holes with silicone or such and choke the engine by putting there hand over the snorkel , are you snorkeled ? I had a 300 that was like that and fixed it back to stock

No the plunger when ‘choked’ opens the enrichment passage of the carb. See the hole on the left side of the carb throat? It goes all the way through to the engine side. You can actually clean the enrichment circuit with a pipe cleaner

You cannot easily make the long skinny plunger work–can’t rob the seal can’t replace just the seal. you are right to simply get the real deal OEM plunger.

Many many sellers do not know their applications.

if that was directed at my comment ------- no , if you by-pass ( get rid of ) the plunger , the hole has to be sealed off -------- to achieve choking with the plunger gone , you put your hand over the snorkel and it acts just like a choke , I ran my blue 300 for a while like that , till I put a new light switch assembly and changed the carb and went back to the plunger ( fuel enrichment valve )

Partzilla shows the adaptor I was talking about where the long plunger is used in place of the short plunger , it came with a kit , not available at the moment ---see the short ones on e-bay
