Re: why do I have to keep artic cat half choked to keep...
A couple of suggestions: Make sure that the gasket seal is good between carb and engine. I had a similar problem with my Cat 500 and found that the choke was sticking. I sprayed down the carb with Gunk and made sure all moving parts were not hanging up. I also put anti fogging oil in the gas to help clean jets and ports hard to clean with a carb rebuild.

something is still wrong in the carby or the fuel lines to the carby
did you check the float level before assembly
Change the plug leads to a better quality and replace the plugs
is the exhaust system clean and not blocked with carbon or rust
Have you checked the Spark Plug ? No Spark & No Fuel means not going to start and run. If you are getting fuel then your Spark plug may need to be cleaned or replaced or even re-gaped. Spark plugs have a tendency to get fouled out. Meaning oil gets on it and it can not throw a good spark. If you do have a good spark then check the choke and or the float in the carb.
If it turns over quickly, ... does the spark plug fire?,..put in new, correct NGK plug to begin, then make sure you have gas going to the carb, then see if gas flows out of the carb drain, (straight head screw)... gas should flow out freely. If its been sitting,, may need a carb cleaning...JUST CLEANING...NOT "rebuilt"...
The spark plug is on the left side (shifter) of the head,,..?/ this is August.. if the atv has been sitting the carb may need a qualified professional to clean it again.. Replace the spark plug before you squirt anything in the engine...
