Did the bike run well before you played with the carb?? Also change the spark plug, could be something stupid as that.

My guess would be that some particle found its way into one of the jets after cleaning and running fine - did you take out the slider? How old was the gas?
Check plug? Also when you reinstalled the Hotstart did the plastic cap lock down correctly on the top of the carb - these are prone to stripping and cause issues - ZipTy has a low cost metal alternative

Was it a sweet old lady that only drove it back and forth to church on Sundays? Kept it up on blocks during the rest of the week?!? :naughty:

Just a suggestion, try blowing into the tank's breather hose or remove the gas cap see if then you can start it. I was riding at high RPM's and my 450 would just cut out. I tried blowing into the vent tube and hardly any air would get into the tank.
