Default ttr125 choke stuck

Hey guys, I know it's been a while since I've posted up, been crazy at work. Well I finally made it home with a little time left over to ride, only to find that the choke on my little trail bike is stuck, I have tried to remove the cable to lube it up thinking that the cable is stuck only to find that the plunger that goes into top of the carb is stuck and will not come out. Any suggestions? I have loosened the cable termination at carb. and soaked it down with wd40 with no luck. These things are almost impossible to start without choke.

If it hasn't been solved by now...
Use liquid wrench penetrating oil. soak that in there and it should come out as if never stuck. Really awesome stuff

That choke is above the clamps middle of the bars right? If you can't get a cable luber on it, might have to replace it.

that seems to happen on all of them....my friend has one and that happened.....we did all of that also with the soaking....but none of it worked so we just pulled up on it as hard as we could and it came unstuck....it was weird because he has never ridden it in the rain and its always been inside....but i dont recommend doing it because i have no idea about your situation....it worked for us but i have a feeling we were just lucky....

Those carbs just plain blow. On my wifes I changed the carb over to one for a YZ85. It made such a difference. It even made it so that you only had to warm the tiny beast up for 2 min instead of 5 before riding it.

I doubt it's lean. Maybe too rich.

I appreciate all the suggestions guys, I finally made it back home yesterday, and took the carb off to see what was up. I had to take a pair of pliers under the choke body after unscrewing it, and pry it out. There was some kind of white crystalized crap all in the top of the needle assembly. No idea what it was or where it came from, only thing I can figure is some kind of corrosion? Once I got it out took everything apart and cleaned it as good as possible with B-12, put it all back togeather, and what do you know the bike started right up with no problem ( without the choke ), the only problem was that the bike wouldn't idle down, let it warm up completly and backed off the idle screw 1 1/2 turns. The bike now idles fine, just a little faster than it did before. Anybody got any idea what the white junk was? Or what would cause the idle to go crazy? Sorry so long winded, and thanks again for the help.
