Adjusting the choke is no big deal. It's also no big deal to see if it's working correctly.
When the engine is cold, as in it's been sitting overnight, remove the air cleaner and bump the throttle linkage. The choke flap should slam completely closed. If the choke is not closing completely, adjust it until it does.
Once you start the engine, the choke should open very slowly as it warms up. I don't think removing the carburetor will do anything for you unless the choke coil is broken.
