[/font=Tahoma][black][/black]Yes i got a 1998 Polaris Indy 500 and i took it out last weekend to my uncles house. We put a new throttle on it and i went out to ride it and i would hit the throttle and it would somewhat die so i put the throttle all the way down and it came out of it and then when i let off a little bit i would die again. Can anyone help me on what the problem is?

Sounds like you have a choke open-dumping fuel in one cylinder. Make sure they have both have seated down on the rubber seal of the plunger and the plunger slides up and down good. You probably will have to take the carbs off and clean where the cable/plunger is screwed on the carbs. There is most likely some green looking crap down inside there.
