    vibration causes the heavier part of the choke to fall downward. tighten up the screw that holds it in place, and if that doesn't work then add weight or a spring to the handle

    Just tighten the screw the choke lever pivots on.

    I've had some where my pant leg would sometimes hit it while pedaling and put it on - gently bending it back a bit fixes that.
