    2003 xlt1200 help!!

    I have a 2003 Yamaha XLT1200 that starts off running good, however after a few seconds of running it blogs down and will only run just above idle when wide open. It sat for a long time and now just started running it again. It has a choke and I noticed when running it if I pulled the choke out some it would speed up as long as I keep playing with the choke on and off it keep running. I put new spark plug in it and the first one is still pretty wet with oil while the other two where dry. Any ideas what my ski's problem might be???? Thanks!

    Check the compression you could have 2 bad cylinders

    When you let the ski sit for a long time you need to get the carbs rebuilt and check compression on the cylinders if there all even and 110 and above rebuilding the carbs should fix the problem.
