Now that I finally got it started, it runs for a few minutes having to apply throttle entire time, but when I come to a stop it dies and won't restart. When I squeeze the clutch it wants to die. whats going on?

i opened it a little to start then opened it up as I was riding, seemed to get it to run smoother. but after i stopped and it died i tried different positions with no luck. what are the proper positions. cold start, running, warn start etc..?

except for a cold hard rain or snow on the ground, the choke isn't really needed once the motor has been started a few times since new

if the idle screw won't get you an idle, then usually, either you're too rich or the clutch is dragging a bit
