Hi my name is***** need you to apply the choke to see if you can get it to respond better then without the choke, and let me know, first try about 1/4 choke, then give a little more, what I would like to know if it helps ?

Thanks

Kenny

It won't run without the choke being all the way on. You can cancel my request and send a refund, I took it to a dealer

Yes, it sounds like you defiantly have a carb issue, likely from unstable fuel (sitting)

Thanks
