If you've got an auto idle function you'll also have a switch somewhere to shut it off, so look for that first.
Engine surging is almost always a problem somewhere in either the air cleaner or the carb. Check the air cleaner, if it's not dirty take the bowl off the carb and look for dirt in the bottom.

Poulan bv200. will not throtle up. it starts with choke at1/2 and throtle at 1/2. new spark plug and clean air filter. when i try to zero choke it dies. and at full throtle it will not get to full speed...

The unit is lean. rebuild the carb with a carb kit and check your fuel lines. If they are brown or discolored or brittle they need to be replaced. carb kits run approx. 11 - 18 dollars from your local dealer.

Check your throtle position sensor. You need to check the code when the light is on.

4 cylinder motorbike engine won't stay running. Fuel is injected in. The sparks are all working. It will start running sometimes and only keep going with near full throttle which will hold engine at less...

If its cable throtle then clean throtle hosing on the inlet manifold.If that does not work clean the injectors.By adding fuel treatment for injection systems.Or remove and get them checked out.
