Gator XUV 550 won't start again....

I got my Gator last year with about 195 hours and light use, and it wouldn't start when I received it. I ended up troubleshooting to the fuel solenoid, replaced it and all was well. I've since run into another starting issue and can't track it down. I took out the solenoid again just in case it went bad in slightly over a year, but it wasn't stuck open as it was last time, it's moving freely.

Any other things to check? Is the carb flap supposed to be open or closed? Mine seems to be open, not sure if that's normal.

I'm going to replace the fuel filter again and see if that helps but I just don't think that's the main issue.

Thanks in advance for any advice you can give!

You've only said "starting issue". Does the starter work and the engine turns over but doesn't start? Is nothing happening when you turn the key? Do you only hear a "click" when you turn the key? Is the engine sputtering or trying to run when you try to start it?

The engine turns over but just won't start. There is no sputtering or trying to run, it seems as if it's not getting fuel. I previously replaced the solenoid as the old one was stuck closed. I pulled the solenoid again and it seems to be alright, moving freely.

Will it run a second or sputter if you pour a tablespoon of fuel down the throat of the carburetor?

I'll try that tomorrow. What state should the flap on the carb be in, closed or open? Mine seems to be stuck open.

I think you are looking at the choke plate on top of the carburetor which is normally in the open position.
