Can you be more specific on whether the bike didn't run for a while ? Does it shut down when you open the throttle with the choke pulled out ?
I had a different bike a fe weeks ago with a similar problem. In this case, the bike had not run for a prolonged period, and the fuel had dried out in in the carburator. When it does, it leaves a sticky gum that can block the jets in the carburator.
Because the choke uses another circuit your bike still gets fuel when it's pulled, but as soon as you close it, no more fuel goes to the engine.
If this is the case you need to clean out the carburator and jets.
Just my toughts. Don't shoot me if this is not the cause. It's difficult to assess based on text

Thanks for the feedback. I'll be loading up the trailer tonight heading to the smoky mountains tomorrow after work.
