Sidestand switch broken or moved? If the switch does not detect the sidestand is retracted it will kill the engine when it is put in gear.

Sounds to me like your main fuel jet is clogged if it will idle (different fuel supply) but not run with open throttle. When you open the throttle the engine gets more air and not enough fuel and quits.
Solution: Open (disassemble) the carburator and spray carburator cleaner through every orifice. Make sure you actually get cleaner THROUGH all holes. You've no doubt got fuel "varnish" in the jets from letting the equipment sit idle for long periods.
Prevention is the key: Always use a fuel stabilizer (Stabil) in your fuel. Mix as described on teh package for the "long term storage" concentration — generally double the dose of "normal" concentration and you'll minimize future problems.

Has any work been done on the engine? Especially the carburetor? There is an insulator piece between the engine and carburetor to reduce the heat from the engine. Also the muffler has a screen inside of it, if you have the two piece muffler on the engine that gets plugged up and the motor looses power. There are also two small feed tubes that hang down inside the fuel tank that also get gummed up and they also will cause the same symptoms. Is the motor burning any oil yet? This will happen when the rings get worn out. If the valves get bad the motor will be hard to start due to lower compression. There could possible be a mechanical cause from the cam shaft if it lost oil to it for some reason and caused a lobe to round off, but this would be prevalent at all times. You can put a compression gage on the engine to check the compression by pulling the cord and rotating the engine over three compression cycles to get a reading. Good Luck, RAC
