prarie 650 carb issues

I've got a prarie 650 that will only start and run with full choke on, even after warming up. It will only idle, if I try to throttle up it dies, and then wont start without a lot of cranking. does anyone have suggestions ? The carb was rebuilt about 2 years ago and I haven't put 10 miles on it since.

Sounds like a dirty fuel filter or clogged jets. That's the first thing I would check. By what you are saying, it isn't getting enough fuel. With the choke on, it richens by quite a bit.

I changed the fuel filter and the fuel pump. will carb cleaner get the jets clean or will it have to be taken apart?

If it has been sitting a while it will need to be rebuilt. I doubt carb cleaner will clean it, you need to take them apart or have someone do it that knows what they are doing.
