welcome to GC. I also have an 02. one thing to say GAS. if it was sitting for any length of time, your ethanol gas probably separated and the ethanol attracted water. That happened to mine. I would start up with the choke on full. As soon as I tried to take the choke off, it would stall. Needed a carb cleaning/rebuild. the gas will leave a film in the carb and clog the needle. look into using a additive for the fuel and in the cans you store gas. I went with the Stabil-fuel marine grade and haven't had anymore problems. you can find more threads on the carb/gas issue and which additive to use on here. look them up and do some research and make your decisions. By the way I ended up taking the hit also just to reset everything and now I put nothing but treated gas in mine. If you can find some gas station that sells non-ethonal fuel, go there. Good luck and enjoy the ride!
