Honda Shadow choke issue

My 2008 Shadow Spirit has recently developed a choke issue. I pull it out to warm the engine, and the choke gets sucked right back in. I first noticed the rpms falling, and thought I had bad gas, or the air filter was dirty, or a half dozen other ideas. But I finally noticed that my choke wasn't staying out.

Any ideas of what may be going on?

2008 Shadow Spirit 750
14,000 miles - probably due for a tune up
Most of my rides are around town, so they are short, maybe 2-5 miles at a go.
A friend suggested running engine cleaner (I can't remember the name at the moment) thru, which I did. That didn't solve the problem.

Thanks in advance for any advice....

Re: Honda Shadow choke issue

Is there a tension nut or similar on it? Probably just needs tightening.

If the bike isn't braking properly, you don't start by rebuilding the engine.
