Tune up

You need to study or research info on tune-ups
Basically it is a sales pitch, as only spark plugs are left
& tune-ups stopped 25 years ago from a technical perspective
Your not actually tuning anything
You replacing old spark plugs,gas & air filter etc,that has been
called preventative maintenance for over 20 years
For the last 30 years the vehicles Computer does all the
engine tuning

Hard starting, rough idle when cold, then smooth running when warm

Need year/make/model/mileage of vehicle to provide a more specific set of troubleshooting steps.

When was the last tune up? Hard starts when cold are usually caused by fouled spark plugs, worn plug wires, or weak ignition coils. Fuel systems are not as effected by temperature changes as the ignition components.

Will run only with choke on

This is fuel starvation ( it is running too lean ) if it has been stood from last year with the same fuel in , the fuel may have gone stale and bloced the jet in the carb, keep priming and starting this may eventualy clear the carb, if not the carb will have to come off and clean through, ley us know if you need help servicing the carb.

Inherited a rider with the 42-inch deck 6 speed, etc. It has not run in a year. Changed battery (got it to turn over), checked out oil (good), gas tank was dry, put in gas, but cannot get it to turnover....

I'm sure there is a choke on the dash of the tractor. I believe there should be 2 knobs. One for choke and one for pto. If not check on your throttle lever it could be all the way up on it.

You have to just tune up your air fuel combution chamber with a proper setting as this happens when this setting has been changed. Just go to a proper service center and do a service of your bike and ask them to check setting of it. According to me the optimized ratio to air is to fuel (AIR:FUEL) should be (9:1) for better performance of bike. But it is better to ask service center technician as it veries according to surround environment, fuel inatake by vehical, etc.....

It sounds like your bike has been sitting in storage for an extended period of time (a year or more) - and the carburetors are plugged up. If this is the case, they will need to be completely disassembled and cleaned out.
If it hasn't been sitting (and the carbs aren't plugged up) then check that all of the normal tune-up items have been performed, especially valve adjustment, oil and filters, spark plugs, etc. If this fails to produce positive results, perform a compression check on the engine. Each cylinder must be able to produce at least 140 psi of compression in order to run and idle properly.
