Don’t worry about “choking” the dust collector.
Restricted flow causes no harm.
In fact, restrictions only cause reduced power draw by the motor and a slight increase in RPM.

I keep a 2 1/2” hose connected to one side of the “Wye” connector on my HF collector and a 4” on the other. It will handle both of those connection being open at the same time.
