2000 kodiak will not idle

Hi guys! New to forum. I have a 2000 Kodiak that hasn't been ridden in approx 6 months. Yesterday I fired it up and let it idle for approx 30 mins with no issue. It ran great! Then I turned if off and let it sit for approx 2 hrs. Went to crank it up and it fires right up but will not idle now?? Cranks great but unless you keep light throttle it dies. Even with light throttle it seems to miss and smells like it is running very rich. Changed plug with no results. Removed carb and sprayed out with seafoam and ran wire through jets hoping to find clog(I was afraid to remove jets in fear I wouldnt get them replaced correctly. Of note, had carb professionally rebuilt less than a year ago and has ran great until now. Thinking carb may be gummed up again but wondering about a spark issue too. Would appreciate any advice/expertise. Thanks!! C. Drum

Sat for 6 months is a red flag for carb problem especially if it had Ethanol gas in it.

Thx for the input!! Guess I will get the carb rebuilt. One other question....The petcock is clogged on primary( just a trickle. I removed and attempted to clean with little success trying not to damage the screens). I mostly run it on reserve which has good flow. But I did notice the other day it will idle normally for a bit(10-15 seconds when I move the petcock to closed/off position?? Afterward will rough idle for second or two then die? Thinking of replacing petcock prior to carb rebuild since clogged anyway. Can the petcock cause ATV to not idle and seem to burn very rich but run normally at higher rpm/speeds? Thanks again!!
