I have a 2004 outlander 400 max. I have been playing with the carb for a few years now and can't get it to run right. When driving, I don't need the choke, but as soon as I let it go to idle, I must have full choke or it will die. When I'm idling and give it gas, I can't have any choke on, or it will die. I ended last year on a bad note with the wheeler and just put it to the side bc I need some more parts for it like redifrentral seals and a new cooling fan so I have even looked at it in about 6 months. I started tossing up the idea for a new wheeler, but prices are outrageous, and there are none in stock. I also have been thinking about getting a new motor or having a professional look at the motor to get it running. Any suggestions would help. Thank you for your time and knowledge.

Sounds like you have a blockage in the idle jet/circuit in the carby.
Strip the carby and make sure all jets and passageways are spotless. Also check that the float hasn't got a pin hole in it and check float level height.
Check for water and bad fuel if it's been sitting around.
