You mentioned in a previous post that your ignition key had been changed for a Honda one. The Honda system activates the choke through the warm-up lever, whereas the Soozook choke is activated by the key, so, as JABS says, a separate choke button has been fitted on the console, as the Honda keyswitch doesn't have one. It may be worth trying to source a Soozook (or similar) keyswitch with the 'press for choke' feature, as this will be simpler to operate.
The choke usually only needs to be activated while turning over the engine from cold.
