Honda 5.5 gxs motor will only run with the choke on and then it will only idle if you try to rev it up it shuts down any Ideas

You should have a fuel delivery problem, not a fuel supply problem. I'll bet cleaning the main jet will have it back running well but it certainly won't hurt to check the entire fuel system.
