Hey everyone, i am relatively new to riding and i have hit my first bump in the road. I recently had my bike stored away for the winter. It was stored with a battery tender making sure the battery was in good shape, i also had turned off the fuel. I went to start it the other day and it was struggling to start but i could tell it was catching on but it just wasnt catching all the way. i was able to finally get it started and had it warming up with the choke pulled all the way out. But i had it idling for a good half an hour and it was definitely getting hot. But, when i would push in the choke even one notch, it was cutting out immediately. I could throttle but when i was getting ready to push it in so i could ride, It was immediately cutting out. I am thinking this has something to do with my choke line and carburetor. I am curious if i can fix this or do i need a mechanic? By the way, it is getting harder and harder to start it. It should not take me half an hour to get it started. i am curious if it is the my fuel line or something. Any help would be appreciated.

be careful running a bike on choke when it's warmed up you'll blue the head pipes. the main jets are plugged or there's an intake leak if it only runs choked. these 650s require all the air intake ducts to be tightly sealed and the air filter installed because the stock jetting is so lean. any extra air getting in really messes with fuel/air mix

ok that makes sense, i appreciate the help. i will look at some videos and get the jets cleaned and make sure the air intakes are sealed properly.
