Sounds like the carbs need to be removed and cleaned.This should be done every year before you ride.The exhaust valves should also be cleaned and adjusted.

thanks

hey thanks for the reply. Im not mechanically minded at all but i actually took the carbs out and all three pilot jets were blocked. i cleared them out of course and every think else looked good. It took a few pulls to get it going again but i got it started. After about 1 minute with the choke half on i turned it off and it Idled perfectly, then adjusted the idle speed and it seems to run better than it has done since i bought it.

thanks again lee
