Plugs or leads.

When warm they work better and dont arc out as badly. Ive had a few cars do it

Choke should be closed when cold, open when hot.

Yeah mine did it too so I replaced the leads and the plugs
And was still doing it and then I replaced the
Dizzy cap was still doing it
So I took off the whole carby and played around lookin at things
And moving thiings to find out what was wat
Put it all back together and it worked
Dunno what I did but I fixed it haha
It's all fun and games till some one flys off the 4x4

maybe even turn the idle up around 800-900 rpm if it hasn't already been done.
