The Keihin carbs have a very weak choke circuit. My 98 XC 600 would only die if I used full choke and that took longer than Mikuni equipped sleds . It also was a pain when first starting the sled for the season or if you ran it out of fuel. Took a long time to get fuel to it to start. Some installed a primer to cure the problem.

99xcs came with a primer, how did you adjust the choke? Did you follow any instruction, or just start turning stuff?

You sync and adjust them while in the sled.

Not worth getting rid of it because your having trouble, what your are working on is pretty simple to do, you just need to know how. One thing at a time.
