Suzuki - strange dash button

Hi, I have a Suzuki DT55. On the dash is a push button which makes a solenoid type click in the engine when pressed when the ignition switch is on. I am guessing this is a choke? Am I right? If so, how does one use this choke on this engine please?
Thanks
Edward

I would look under the hood whilst pressing it and you will be able to see what it is doing.

I have the same feature on a Yam two stroke, but it is on the ignition key.

Just press the button whilst cranking, if you need to!

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.
