1. The atv is hard to get started from a cold start. But once it's started it cranks easy.
2. Once it's running i have to barley get into the throttle or it will just die and I have to restart it. I can slowly get to full throttle....
3. Starting out on even the slightest incline the atv will stall and I have to remember crank the engine....
Or even just hammering the throttle from a stand still it dies
Any ideas what the issue would be?
Since it's new why don't you go back to the dealer?
Anyway, I suspect that the problem has to do with fuel supply aka carburetor. Check if the fuel flows freely to the carb and later check if the carb is clean(may require cleaning if fuel had remained in the carb for a longtime at the dealer or water got in).
