Ha, I like your title! That's really Baaaaaad
If it starts when holding your hand over the air intake, that makes it sound like your too lean on start up. That tells us either your electric choke is not working or your starter jet is plugged. Download the owners manual, it gives a pretty good overview on how to set and adjust the carb.

Welcome to the best prowler site.......your electric choke is bad,I also have a 2006 I had the original one go bad and then I bought another one at 180 dollars,and it went bad after 1 year,some members are plugging the vent line that comes off the side of the carb,and others have installed a manual pull choke to the prime lever on the side of the carb.I took off my factory carb and put a mikuni pumper carb on mine with a manual choke,it can set for weeks and still fire right up,most of the time all i have to do is shove down on the peddle half way 2 times and not even use the choke.

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........
