    Default 2002 sx viper will not idle without choke on and off

    Help,

    After comming out of storage, my viper will not idle after warmed up, I assume there is some issue with the idle cirecut, can anyone tell me how to clean the idle circuit? Sled runs fine at mid and high range. I put Seafoam in the gas, in hopes that it might fix the problem. Any Ideas?

    Good chance you pilot jets are plugged. You'll have pull the carbs and clean the all the jets with carb cleaner. You may need to run a fine wire down the center of the pilots to get them cleaned out. The ethanol gas blends are awful for growing stuff - you need to drain the carbs if the sled's going to sit for any length of time.
