Im planning on going out to the desert for the first time this season for Easter weekend, I got my 98 400f out and drained the tank, took off the carb and sprayed it out (dint mess with any jets) and put on some new parts (chain, sprokets, airbox i got off ebay, and new radiator hoses)

SO now ive tried to get it started, kicked the crap out of it and all it will do is fire up with the choke on and run for a max of 5 seconds, it wont even fire up with the choke off!

I NEED HELP! anything would be helpful and much appreciated

Your pilot jet is clogged with dry fuel varnish. Time to clean the carb.
