So wtf is a tickler button? is it that thing next to the choke?

Mine has never worked. is that a big deal?

Re:

its the primer type button on a bing carb

why doesnt it work, the only way it couldnt work is if the pole isnt there, all it is is a little pole that goes from the outside of the carb to the bowl, to keep the float pushed down to manually fill the bowl with fuel,

Re:

The only reason it wouldn't work is if the metal part of the float has been bent/messed around with... it its off just a mm the float wont push down far enough to allow the needle valve to open... it'll just stay shut :P

What That's For (WTF) it's a slang word for the primer button we use it a lot on this site...

Re:

My '66 Triumph Bonneville had a tickler button.It works just like those plastic squeeze things on weedeaters and chainsaws.It's a primer that squirts liquid gas into the carburetor.Unless it's really cold,you can usually get by without it if your choke is working.If it is broken,make sure it's not causing a vacuum leak.

Re:

Actually dude, WTF is not an abbreviation for "What's that for...", it actually stands for a much more vile and crass phrase - "What the f---". (Just a tid-bit of totally useless information)
