04 sx venom er

Hi Gang my 04 600 venom does not idle,it only has 200 miles on it. I put most of that on the first winter I rode it. The following summer I would start it monthly the next winter we had no freeze on the lake so it sat that following summer the batt was junk, i put in a new one and it never idled since.I can only keep it running by applying the choke and throttle,any help would be great.I also run sea foam in the gas,the carbs look spotless.Thanks Bob M

Take your carbs out and clean 'em. Jets are clogged. Very common on the Yammy triples. Never, ever store your sled with pump gas. Except if you have non-oxygenated available. Non-oxy will not gum up nearly as quickly as typical pump gas.
