trx300 4x4 dies when throttle is pressed.

I have a 99 fourtrax that has been sitting for awhile that I am having problems with. If I choke the quad I can get it to start, but it will die once I unchoke it no matter how long I let it warm up. In neutral, slightly choked it will continue to run. Once I put it in gear it will run (stil choked), but dies once I give it any throttle.

the carb is the obvious suspect, but thought I would get some suggestions before tearing in to it. Also reading the forums I see some suggestions of sea foam, should I try adding some to the tank and letting the bike run idle for awhile or start in a different direction?

No sir............
Starting fluid helps kill the bugs
so does Raid.. lol.....Speaking of Raid
My wife bought a can of Raid flea killer she was reading the instructions to see if it would hurt the cat if we sprayed the carpets and she busted out laughing.... she read allowed the you can spray your dog with it!!! next time your in the store grab a can of it and read it I fell out.
Well, it begins.... Took me awhile to get the carb kit and then a little bit longer to find the time, but its underway. I got the carb pulled in about 30 minutes and the bottom pan of the carb off, I stripped one screw out not realizing it but it turned out to be no big deal, just used a hacksaw to cut a notch then used a flat head screw driver.
