    Can you elaborate on what you cleaned and also any mods you may have done. Also when was the last time you changed the fuel filter? Tell us what you have done in detail and we can get you some real help. Carb cleaner is not the cure all

    I would not run it anymore.When you choke it like you said and it runs alot better,this means that your adding more fuel to the motor with less air,with the choke plates closed up some,meaning its not getting enough fuel.Try the filter like Bill said but im thinking its a 2000 ski that probably needs a carb rebuild.How many hours on the ski and any mods? Dont go ripping your carbs off just yet.One thing at a time.
