Welcome to the forum.

Does that choke only feature one detent? Many have two. I can't remember- I think it's actually a starter-enricher circuit, instead of a conventional "choke". If it had a conventional choke plate, you could drill a hole in the plate to allow more air in when closed. Obviously, you would drill a very small hole (maybe 1/16", test, and enlarge as necessary. Since I'm pretty sure it's actually a starter-enricher circuit, I think the only thing you could do is reduce the size of the orifice (jet). I do not know if that's a replaceable part. One thing you can try is warm up the engine, and turn the idle down as low as it will go without stalling. That may help when choked.

You might be able to alter the choke lever mechanism to allow it to hold in a partway position.
