Thank God I live in California. If a choke lever gets too loose on one of my engines, I simply remove the offending POS. It never really gets cold enough to acually need a choke here. And if it does get REAL cold, I'm probably not going riding anyway. But I guess if you need yer choke, Then h*ll yes, locktite the stuffins out of it.
I think the reason it keeps coming loose, (could be wrong,) is because the carb is made of a softer metal, (not steel,) and any use of it will wear a minute layer of metal away. Then of course, it's loose again.
