Lots of things can go wrong with fuel delivery on these machines. carbon builds up[ in the engine and muffler system...ethanol laced fuel helps break down the sensitive carb parts and especially the fuel lines.
If you feel like it,open up the carb and take a look inside for any debris especially on the real fine mesh screen on the fuel pump side under the mylar diaghram. Check inside the fuel tank for a bad/dirty fuel filter and/or brittle fuel line...Fuel lines develop cracks and holes, thus leaking air and affecting the carbs operation. A rich mix starts these engines but if the mix becomes too lean, they won'd idle and if you run them too long this way you can cause engine damage due to the lack of gas./oil used with so much air entering the system. Don't be afraid to look around and poke around for other problems. Pull the spark plug and either clean it real good or replace it. It gets a build up on it sometimes that needs to be removed (especially down around the electrode insulator (the white part under the tip).

does it have a fuel filter, or air? If it does make sure they are both clean and free of debris as priming will force fuel up line but will die as soon as its burned out

Check the mounting screws holding the carburettor and the plate behiend the carb, they often become loose, also the gaskets, they might need renewing. Your carb. could need cleaning and new diaphrams. stephen.

Runs on choke a little


sounds like the carburetor has gummed up a bit, and may need adjustments - or, the fuel pickup in the tank has come loose [i.e.: deteriorated fuel lines] - also, make sure your gas mix is FRESH. if your gas mix is more than 2 months old, dump it

Check at the exhaust port. Clean out any carbon buildup there. Believe me, it makes a big difference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
