A choke is the right way to do it and thus our effort is to make a true choke. I'm guess this is why you don't see squeeze bulbs on many bikes.

Yeh, but it gives you a fine mist, unlike carb priming, once started you'll need to control idle with the right wrist.... See no reason why it wouldn't work.
