Okay, so I cleaned it out like you said. I took out all the jets and opened up the carb and blew compressed air through the holes the jets were in. I also found that the pilot air jet screw that lets air in was screwed in " all the way"! I un-screwed it about 2 turns out like the mechanic at yamaha said. After all of this the bike now runs " without" the choke. Yay!
But, I have another problem now. The bike will idle when first started but after I take it for a spin and as I come to a stop it dies. As I ride, I have to give it gas when I hold the clutch in. I have now changed the spark plug and it was dark gray. It starts up easier than before but haven't taken it out yet. I will know by tomorrow or the day after.
