I've got an 04 sportsman 400 and the bike will not idle without me holding the choke. As soon as i release the choke, the bike will turn off. The other option is to be hitting the throttle, but as soon as i let go of the throttle, the bike shuts off.

Any idea of what that could be? I just bought the bike recently and it started doing this a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks.

first things first. Have you checked the ETC contacts on the right side handlebar? There should be about a 1/16th of an inch between them. If you start it and you pull the throttle cable a bit does it run then? Second of all, have you adjusted the idle at the carb?

Knurled knob under the carburetor. ETC is the adjustment on the handlebars.
