have a 2002 550 fan classic that will run with the choke on then dies when you take the choke off. it will rev up with the choke on for about 45 secs then die. but if you don't have the choke on it wont run at all. it sat since 04. any help will be great thanks

completely clean the carbs, and make sure the chokes are not stuck. Be sure to clean out your fuel pump as well, they get gunked up easily.

Pilot jet is clogged. Carb(s) need torn apart and jets cleaned, any small motor shop should do it for less than $50 if you can't do it yourself.

Glad you got it fixed! Put some sea-foam in the tank when you store it and run it til it gets into the carbs and that shouldn't ever happen again.
