Anyway, the other bike the carb came from was a different year and model, so the jets could be way off, fuel screw, idle, etc. I'm hoping to figure it out without it being a worn out engine.

and then with the choke on or off worsens as it heats up mean the jetting is too lean?
Is this a new problem or has it always ran this way?
Try cleaning your carb first , some bikes like lots of choke if the pilot is plugged.

I just noticed that to get it started, it took the choke. If I leave the choke on as the bike warms up, it starts to run worse as I would expect. If I then turned the choke off when the engine was warmed up, it seemed to run even worse.
With the bike cold again, if I start it with the choke on, then turn the choke off before the bike warms up, the bike again starts to run worse as the bike warms up and seems to run somewhat better with the choke on.
So, I was thinking that perhaps the bike is jetted lean in general if it runs better with the choke on in different scenarios.
