2000 Polaris Virage problem
I purchased a 2000 Virage a couple months ago ,when i first tried it out it ran great, however the second time I took it out it kept wanting to stall when you gave it any throttle. I changed the spark plugs because they looked horrible and it started perfectly and did not stall at out out of the water. Today i took it out and it ran great for about 15 minutes then it started to stall again when a gave it any amount of throttle. I was about a mile from the marina and it would only run with the choke out (at idle speed) , if i attempted to push the choke back in it would cut off again...ANY ideas or suggestions of what it may be would be appreciated, before i have to call someone to loo at it.
...Oh yes when i got it out of the water to flush the cooling system it ran fine without shuting off and without the choke engaged

Welcome to the Hulk
Lots to check, but start with cylinder compression.
Also, make sure you are using the correct spark plugs for that engine.
