When you say you cleaned out the carb, can you describe that process exactly? I'm thinking that after setting up for several years, it may need more than just a few shots of carb cleaner down the pipes - you may need to really pull that carb apart and give it a good cleaning from the inside out.

It could be that you are running too lean when the choke is open. Meaning that when you pull the knob out for the choke you are actually closing the choke plate creating a richer mixture for start up. As the engine warms and the choke opens it creates a leaner mixture as more air is allowed in. So when you state that it will only run on the choke, it sounds like the engine needs that richer fuel mixture. Have you adjusted the mixture screw? I do not know a lot about the carbs on these atv's, but I think a carb is a carb no matter the application.
