The Bing choke pulls are fairly easy to fabricate in a home workshop. I have them on my R100S. They eliminate the handlebar or engine-mounted lever, cables and springs. BMW offers a "blanking" cap that can be used to fill the vacant spot created by the removal of the handlebar-mounted enrichener lever.

For a visual on what's what...

The pulls on my bike do not have the large black knobs. Instead, a small wire loop captures a rubber grommet. Simple by design. I've always thought the large plastic "CHOKE" knob is a bit over the top.
